All About Aurora Postage Stamp Trains
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. Incidentally, MSRP for the 4721 was $29.95; a Western Auto in Greencastle, PA was selling it for $22.95.
