MARX Radio Train Control Tower No.7
Posted by traindaddy1 on Sunday, October 01, 2017 7:40 AM

Hello:

For years, we have had this tower on the layout (not working). 

Yesterday, we saw an eBay listing # 192316779673 Vintage Marx Toys Lighted Radio Train Control Tower that shows a  man, a clock and other things through the window on the tower shed.

Ours does not have this nor do we have a light.

Would you know if these features are unique or if, for all this time, we have been missing things?

As always, many thanks.

Went back and rechecked the pictures. Looks like a "Kit-bash custom" tower. Thanks for your interest.

I'm thinkin your right as the only outside difference in appearance is the green roof.

I am not an expert on Marx. I have had several of those towers over the years. Some had stuff inside the shack, others did not.
