Made in 1966 only, this set has the same 6 panel configuration as the Pioneer 600 differing in that it was decorated as a winter scene. Regular scenic panels were oversprayed with white paint and a "sparkle" material to create a snow effect. The roadways on these panels are a flat black to give the appearance of being wet. The scenery items and house roofs are also oversprayed white to simulate snow. This is the most collectable of the All Aboard sets.
