Big Top Special Train Set (#08151)
Pictured above from its appearance in the 1974 Life-Like catalog, this train set
included the company's Circus Train items in one package. A Baltimore & Ohio Pacific 4-6-2 Steam Engine is shown
as the power provided in this set which retailed for $60 in the mid-'70s. In addition to the three flat cars with various
circus items, the Big Top Special also had the Lighted Circus Performers Car, working Searchlight Car, and red Caboose that
carried "Like Like Combined Shows" on its side in white letters.

This car is listed by Life-Like in a 1973 price guide as the Circus Combo Passenger
Car and sold then for $3.50.
