|Syndicate Trading Specials|
We don't know which Syndicate it was and we don't know what they were trading, but we do know that IVES sold at least six distinct sets that were labeled "Syndicate Trading Special" or "Syndicate Special". Below are the five we've been able to verify through original boxes. The sets usually contain intricate layouts and at least both the mechanical sets that we've been able to verify contained a small station and other small track accessories.
