Thanks in advance.
Paul, anytime you have a real tough question about Marx and it is not answered here on the forum, the Kruger Street Toy Museum in Wheeling, WV most likely can answer your question. Many of the Marx Toys were made just south of Wheeling in Moundsville, WV. They have just about one of everything that Marx ever made.
Each year there is a train show-flea market at Wheeling and of course Marx is at many tables. Also, I see a lot of Marx at the shows around Central Ohio. After looking for about two years for a specific hopper car with specific stampings and couplers, I found it at a little show here in Columbus last month. I have seen the Santa Fe engines on several occasions.
