All About Postage Stamp Trains
1970 Minitrix Advertisement

American Tortoise certainly made an emphatic statement in the August 1970 issue of Playthings magazine. Of particular interest is this:

"MINITRIX has the most exciting new TRAIN SET packaging in the field... packaging that lets you SEE what you're getting!" Curiously, the "exciting new packaging" is substantially similar to the yellow-and-black Postage Stamp flat boxes. Since American Tortoise was the official North American distributor of Minitrix starting 1970, it's unclear what their relationship was with Aurora, particularly when new Postage Stamp sets emerged in 1973.
