Marx O gauge ROCK ISLAND 8 wheel 'dummy'/non-powered loco

Came across this today while further excavating in the garage. Too bad I hadn't found it when listing the powered RI loco as I would have paired them. This is something different, and I suspect more difficult to find. Not only is it the uncommon version of the loco (why would someone buy a switch engine that couldn't switch unless they just had to have the look of more power. On road engines dummy units made the train look more realistic, but... I digress) , but it also is in great condition - probably not used much.

They were part of a large purchase of Marx items in the 80s and intended for a layout which never was built. Decades later I need the room in the garage and boxes of all sorts of stuff have to go. It's your turn to fill a train room...or garage.

Please check out the other Marx pieces I've currently listed and will soon add to. Buy several and save on shipping!

"Je suis Marxiste - tendance Loius." (I am a Marxiste - of the Loius tendency) . I came across this quote referencing Groucho and changed it.
