All About Aurora Postage Stamp Trains
This is a true outlier. The only ones ever released, to my knowledge, were Pennsylvania units included in the 4752 P.S.T. Special Set and 4760 Mighty Mammoth. While they were announced in 1969 (accompanied by some rather dubious artwork, above right), I believe they reached the market no earlier than 1970; actual product photos appeared for the first time in the ATI service manual.
In the early 1970s, American Tortoise became the sole importer of these locos, which were sold under the Minitrix and Model Power brands. Production continued until the late 1990s, when Trix went bankrupt, and their new owner, Märklin, ended production of all North American models.
