1968/69 Fast Freight Sets

Catalog Numbers

Beginning in 1969, sets with power packs were renamed "Rattler." Sets with road names other than Santa Fe or Penn Central, which did not appear in any catalog, were created by adding road codes to one of the two existing sets. The sets were released in bookshelf boxes as well as both styles of flat boxes.
