Kris Train and Track Boxes

Kris Model Trains utilized different train and track boxes through the years. The train boxes in the first two photos below are stacked with the earliest box on top and the latest on the bottom. The earliest white box is smaller and has a lift off lid. The later white box is larger and has end flaps. The earliest color box is predominantly black and orange. Printed on the side is "40 Customized Models of Railroad Cars." The next box down is also black and orange. Omitting "40," it's printed with "Customized Models of Railroad Cars." The last box in the series is blue and orange. This box also has "Customized Models of Railroad Cars" on it.
