Remembering our roots.

How many of us started this hobby with a Marx set? Although I love today's highly detailed equipment, I'll always have a warm spot in my heart for simple Marx Lithographed tinplate, especially the M 10005 in all its configurations.

This is very eye-catching. Not being in any way familiar with it, what sort of wheel configuration does it have and is this clockwork or electric?

The engine was originally designed to be a single unit and pull an articulated passenger train. Marx, in their usual economy and creativity, hooked a dummy unit to the powered one for use in a freight set
The powered unit is electric and has a 0-4-0 Steam engine type motor without any rods. The dummy has 2 axles poked through the sides with smaller wheels. A clockwork version was available.

I never had a Marx and didn't even know they were made but I can see they were beautiful in their on style.
