1961 30067 Goodyear Special Train Set (E. Allen)
Remarks This set is listed as a Goodyear store special train set.  The IBM number list has the name "E.Allen" in parenthesis though it is unclear to me what this means.  The set also contained the Ideal Tiny Town Suburban Station and Water Tower Accessories in Gilbert branding.  While this set is noted on Maury Romer's IBM number list to be a Goodyear set, it appears to have been sold by other retailers, at least in closeout as evidenced by a Gimbel's ad for an apparently identical set.  This set is also unique in that it is the only set to include accessories.  It is interesting that the wiring diagram for the accessories shows them to be wired in series.  No reason is given, but it would either be because the lighting is 6-8 volt or simply for a slightly dimmer light in the accessories.
