Please read the following research about this set which was conducted by the National Toy Train Library for us. The company was founded in 1932 by Pottstown, PA resident Charles S. S product line was produced, printed, and marketed out of Pottstown until August 1933 when the operation was moved to Philadelphia. The move was made because Train Town Inc.

Subbed out their printing needs to a Philadelphia printing company, Brown & Bailey. When this change occurred, the address printed on the box was 417 North Eighth St. Philadelphia, PA instead of Hanover and South Sts. This means the box in your possession and all of the contents held within are from Train Town Inc. S first year of business (1932).

There were other differences though between the'Pottstown' set and the'Philadelphia' set including the size of the box. The Pottstown box is larger than the Philadelphia box. The Pottstown box dimensions are 9" X 16.375". In addition to the Train Town set you have, the company also produced a set of bridges.

Products were available at major department stores such as Sears, Roebuck beginning in 1933. Unfortunately even though the company's products enjoyed high visibility in department stores, records for Train Town Inc. Indicating the company went out of business sometime during that year, although Brown & Bailey continue to sell Train Town Inc. Products until their inventory ran out sometime in 1936 or shortly thereafter. His structures appeared in ads for Polk's Hobbies in 1941 as well as Sterns in December of 1941.
