All About Aurora Postage Stamp Trains
4888 & 4889: 6-Axle Transformer Cars

Model Information

Manufactured by Trix (as opposed to Roco in Austria), the transformer car was one of their first freight cars, appearing in their 1965 catalog (albeit in a pre-production form):

The car is a European design lettered for Deutsche Bahn (a German railroad). The lettering is actually molded into the sides of the car, so some appear to be undecorated when in fact the raised lettering simply has no paint.
