HISTORY
Minix, a range of 17 small plastic vehicles, were first introduced by the Tri-ang Company in 1964. Production continued into the 1970's. The range was intended primarily for use with OO scale model railways and many were supplied with various items of rolling stock. Minix were also supplied individually boxed as well as in twin packs. An example of the packaging used for individual vehicles is shown below. Initially the bases of the vehicles, which included mouldings of bumper grill etc., were chrome plated. After 1972 bases were produced in plain plastic.

Tri-ang / Rovex Minix Catalogue added to the reference resources.
