LOT 1: RARE ORIGINAL MARKLIN ST 800 ROT SET, OB

"OUT OF THE TIME CAPSULE" ...LOT ONE IS ONE OF 17 LOTS OF WONDERFUL EARLY MARKLIN HO TRAINS AND ACCESSORIES RECENTLY PURCHASED FROM THE ORIGINAL OWNER'S ESTATE IN MARYLAND. IT IS MY UNDERSTANDING THAT MOST OF THESE ITEMS WERE PURCHASED BY THE ORIGINAL OWNER WHILE HE WAS STATIONED IN GERMANY AFTER WORLD WAR II.

THIS AUCTION IS FOR LOT 1 : A RARE ORIGINAL MARKLIN ST 800 ROT HO (OR "00" ?) SET IN THE ORIGINAL WOODEN BOX, AND A MARKLIN TRAIN CATALOG. THIS TRAIN SET CONSISTS OF A STREAMLINE LOCOMOTIVE AND TWO CARS. IT APPEARS TO COMPLETE AND ALL ORIGINAL. T IS SOME PLAY WEAR. MOST NOTABLY ON FRONT OF THE ENGINE; VERY LITLLE ELSEW; END OF TAIL CAR CAR HAS NO PAINT LOSS. AS I AM NOT A MARKLIN COLLECTOR, AND HAVE NOT TESTED THE ITEMS BEING SOLD THROUGH THESE AUCTIONS, "ALL ITEMS ARE BEING SOLD AS SHOWN AND AS IS." PLEASE EXAMINE THE PICTURES CAREFULLY. THESE TRAIN ITEMS ARE A LITTLE SMALLER THAN LIONEL O GAUGE OR AMERICAN FLYER S GAUGE TRAINS.

THE 80 PAGE MARKLIN CATALOG, WRITTEN IN GERMAN, INCLUDED IN THIS AUCTION REFERS TO THESE TRAINS AS "OO" ON FRONT COVER I BELIEVE. IT APPEARSTO HAVE BEEN PRINTED IN 1949. IT SHOWS PICTURES OF MANY TRAINS INCLUDING THE ST-800. IT ALSO SHOWS ACCESSORIES INCLUDING A RARE, DOUBLE CROSSING GATE #459 MG WHICH I WILL BE LISTING IN ONE OF THE OTHER LOTS.
