This is one of the rarest marx train set, marx made.
This set is not in Greenberg guide to marx train sets!
This set is extremely rare for theses reasons.
1at a factory number crossover.
2nd. It's not listed in any books or internet sites.
3rd the 400 train has a dubbel reduction motor.
4th this is the electric smoking version, but using baking powder,
Like the windup 400 with a smoke balloon, this electric 400 has the same smoking unit.
A extremely small run of this set was made in 1954.
Like I said, it's not in the Greenberg guide to marx trains sets, or anywhere online.
I paid a lot for this set at 135.00 but I collect the rare stuff. And this is one of the rarest marx trains\ marx sets you can get. The original set number is 14350 then relabiled 14340, neather are in the marx sets book.
This set is complete with the 400 smoking steam train. NYC tender,
Burlington very rare trailer car,
And last the NYC caboose, all cars have 4 wheels with plastic knuckle couplers and transform, track, and packing slip from marx co.
This train has no headlight or reverse unit. It came that way so the smoke balloon could fit. The smoke stack cap is still there, it's often missing. This train still works.
