Are there any websites out there there have a list of marx trains produced?I have seen a tyco,Botchmann(yea,I know),Life Like,and other "Toy trains" but haven't seen a Marx........Long time ago I even saw one site a guy made that included almost every N scale locomotive ever produced with a review on how bad they sucked or how wonderful they were....and there were some real POS engines on his list.......I am kinda interested in seeing what all marx produced in HO scale and maybe collect them.Kinda got bit today when I picked up a nice GP9 in Monon and found a Union Pacific Atchison Topeka and Santa Fe GP9(Grey and yeller UP paint with red ATSF lettering down teh side.....uhhhh,that is just so wrong!).

When I was a year or old (mid 60's) I somehow got an small HO Marx set. It was a
bit unusual, as it had a wind-up NYC steam locomotive, which as I remember had an
0-4-0 wheel arrangement on a body that was probably more fit for a 2-8-0 or
something similar. It also came with a WM gon, & a NYC caboose, & aluminum railed
track, since the engine was wind-up. The straightaways had pre-molded plastic ballast
like some of the stuff nowadays, but the curves didn't. It also came with small
rerailer/crossing. I don't remember it when it was new, & the pieces/parts of it are
buried in my parents' basement, along with a lot of old train stuff I still need to go
through.

Here is the geep I bought for 7 bucks.Wondering about the Dynamic brake blister since it is tan and the engine is red and grey but the blister fits perfectly per 1960s train tolerances.The colors are much darker.THe red is a apple red and the grey is a light SPish color.

A little bit here:

The pic at the top left is EXACTLY what I have. Just add the grey WM gon in the 3rd pic
down on the left, & that would be it. I didn't have the covered hopper to my knowledge.

The last I encountered mine though, it was in pieces parts, some heavily weathered for a
junkyard scene on my 4x8 some 30 years ago.
