: "Postage Stamp Trains" was Aurora's trademark for their line of N scale in
: the early days. They're proabably as good as any from that era (1960's).
: Certainly not up to today's standards, but still fully compatable with
: modern N scale.
They were made by Minitrix, which was (IMO) the Athearn of N scale at the
time. Decent runners and most were pretty close to scale. I still have a
pair of F9A's and some freight cars from sets I bought on close out at
Lionel Kiddie City many years ago. Sets were $9.99 and extra freight cars
were $0.50. Bought all I could afford which at the time was about $30.<g>
Seems to me it was in the late 1970's.....
