All About Postage Stamp Trains
1970 Minitrix Catalog

Trix's 1970 catalog should look familiar: its art is shared by Aurora's 1969 catalog, much of which seems to have originated back in 1967. By this time Minitrix was being imported by American Tortoise, Inc., both owned by Mangold GmbH & Company. Interestingly, Aurora's Canadian distributor was Aurora Plastics of Canada Ltd. in Rexdale, Ontario; American Tortoise operated Trix Train Division in Rexdale, Ontario. Coincidence? See American Tortoise's 1970 magazine ad for more tidbits.
