Beginning in August 2009, Micro-Trains will release the first car in an all new series—the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey™ Billboard Series! This 12-month series will feature colorful representations of actual vintage posters that were used to promote Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey shows. Each poster will be displayed on freight cars! The series will include 11 freight cars, one locomotive and a caboose.
*Posters are for representational purposes only.
Posters were an essential promotional tool for the circus. They were posted by the advance crew all over town and often up to 20 miles outside of the community weeks before the circus arrived. Thousands of these colorful and detailed advertisements were produced for each show and would range from single sheet flyers to large billboards for vacant fields or large buildings. This collectible freight car series will celebrate 11 special Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey posters, so get ready…the show begins this August!
