Marx Postwar Nickel Plate Road Steamer
Electric Train Set
With Box, Track, & Transformer

For your consideration is this set of Marx tinplate trains. A set box, track, and transformer are included. These trains are in excellent condition for their age. They have been gently played with and exhibit very little wear. I will do my best to describe these pieces.
There are 5 pieces of rolling stock: A #994 steam locomotive, a #941 Nickel Plate Road seven-inch tender, a #80982 Wabash seven-inch gondola, a #37956 Pennsylvania Merchandise Service seven-inch boxcar with opening doors, and a #956 Nickel Plate High Speed Service seven-inch caboose.

There are eight pieces of curved track and two pieces of straight track. The track exhibits a fair amount of oxidation, but should clean up reasonably well for operation. A lock-on is included.
The transformer is a #1209 50-watt model, and seems to work just fine.
All pieces are offered in as found condition. They have been examined and deemed to be complete and operative. No warranty of any kind is offered or implied.

The following descriptions are derived from information in the Eighth Edition of Greenberg's Marx Trains Price Guide from 2001.
