All About Postage Stamp Trains
While they were announced in 1969, I believe they reached the market no earlier than 1970; indeed, Minitrix didn't publish actual photos of them until 1971. Thus, to my knowledge they were never released under the Postage Stamp Trains brand, which explains why a number of train sets were never released as well.
In the early 1970s, American Tortoise (a.k.a. Model Power) became the sole importer of these locos. Production continued until the late 1990s, when Trix went bankrupt, and their new owner, Märklin, ended production of all North American models.
