Marx train set

  • I'm new to this forum.  I found a 1950's Marx train set that I had as a child.  It has 10 pieces of track, locomotive and "coal" car with the transformer.   Need guidance on what this may be worth.  Thanks.

  • Is it tinplate?

    I had a set that was 0-27 tinplate. Very noisy when running. Mine was older than 1950, maybe sometime in the 1940's. I gave it all to a nephew for his son.

    Little more info and maybe a picture or two might help.

    Google marx train set. Lots of info out there. Marx made quite a few variations. i just looked.

    An ebay search for what you have might work. Look for what it sold for not the asking price.


    If you ever fall over in public, pick yourself up and say “sorry it’s been a while since I inhabited a body.” And just walk away.
