Thanks for showing the box contents, TMH!  The main difference between the two versions is stickers vs. printing on some of the parts, as you have noted before on set 4122. Different inner box too. Do the instructions have different printing dates?

I do not know because only the store display instructions are open. As you can see the other two sets instructions are sealed.

The set was a Sears exclusive and was only issued from mid 1988 to mid 1989 and it would appear that part way through production some items were of later versions such as the caboose and the transformer.

As you can note in the last picture, there is an open set of manuals. I will send you scans, but it will have to wait until the new year.
OK, at least many thanks in advance  :wave:
