AHM Minitrains Narrow Gauge Set

The AHM HOn 2 1/2 Narrow Gauge MiniTrains rode on standard N-Scale track, but were sized for HO-Scale.  This is very similar to today's Bachmann line of On30 items that are sized for O-Scale, but ride on HO-Scale track. 
The Minitrains HOn line is introduced in 1965.  Additionally items arrive in 1967.  To my knowledge a few of the 1967 and 1968 promised items never arrive. 
The unique AHM HOn 2 1/2 Narrow Gauge line meets its demise in early 1971.  A full-page ad found in the February 1971 edition of Railroad Model Craftsman includes the bulk of AHM's Narrow Gauge line in a "Final Closeout!" sale.  The ad copy boasts that AHM's Narrow Gauge line, "has had good acceptance" however it was being dropped according to this ad.  Those with a spare $6 could take home the Diesel, 10-Cars, and Track (No.3068); the Diesel, 4-Cars, and Track (No. 3051) was only $4.88; the Western Union Express (No.3061) was down to $9.99; and the group of locos were all going out the door starting at $3.77 each.
IHC imports the HO narrow gauge collection at least once to my knowledge in the 1980s.
The line was produced by Egger-bahn in Germany for AHM.

Given the time these train were offered by AHM in the late '60s and the uniqueness of the size, one might think they were only HOn2-1/2 model trains offered. French make Jouef also had HOn2-1/2 trains. Illustrated are examples from 1969 of the Jouef HO narrow gauge releases.
