      It seems that you acquired a number of Marx trains (with the exception of the Lionel coal car). The fact that they have tin wheels dates them to the late 1950's or earlier since Marx switched over to plastic wheels about that time.

      As to value, since they are not a complete set and they are fairly common and it would be best to follow sales on Ebay to get an idea.

      I have just posted a Marx Miooo5 Streamlined set which includes an engine similar to your yellow engine if you would care to have a look and I am in the process of photographing my collection of other Marx train cars.

      The other accessories that you have are hard to identify from your photos and individual photos might be helpful in that process.

      Good luck in your search.

      Here is a link to a current Ebay posting you may find helpful in following to gauge the value of your items.

      Makes me think of my one and only old train set. I can still smell the transformer burning out from overheating it after about 2 hours.
