Member since October, 74 posts. I myself never really had an interest in Marx, until a little while back, when I got hooked. This Helicopter toy is over 50 years old, but it is brand new in excellent shape in the original box! My camera isn't co-operating with me, so I'll have to wait to post pictures. That way, both are cheap because no one wants to pay a lot for an engine with a broken shell, or a wind-up engine that doesn't wind up. With that in mind, let's look at a locomotive! I remember it was two years ago because this picture is of it running on the modular club layout at the antique tractor show which is coming up in 2 weeks.

It has a 6" Coffin Tender:. Gary- Are all those boxcars yours? James- I look forward to seeing what you have! My camera isn't co-operating with me, so I'll have to wait to post pictures.
This site has alot of good information, but you must pay to see all of it, I think it is a CD that you buy. I have a later Marx set from about , the bigger 7" car Nickel Plate Road set, all the cars are well worn track is shot and no box, but it is the set my Grandfather bought for my dad when he was a kid I love Tin Plate, Great thread! Walt's Marxtin site is mostly filled with the unusual and rare Marx cars and sets; he has since produced the Definitive Guide CD which is a much more valuable aid to collecting 6" Marx tin and i also think he has a Marx Plastic guide out now, too.
I'll second Gary's comments on Walt's CD; it has an amazing amount of information about Marx 6" tin and is worth every penny. It basically functions like Walt's website, and allows the user to look up cars by type or number.
If you are interested in 6" tin, you will like the CD! As I stated before, I like the windups - or Mechanicals in Marx lingo - and 6" tin. I prefer items that are perhaps a bit rough; not only are they economical to buy, but it gives me the feeling that I have someone's treasured toy that gave them many hours of enjoyment. A plus is that I can run them without any fear of damaging a pristine piece in a mishap. With that in mind, let's look at a locomotive!
This green CV is an early pre-war locomotive. Marx was a bit of a late-comer to model trains, taking over Joy Line and beginning production in Although some reference books list Mechanical CV's as dating to , the earliest period advertisement for a that I have seen is Montgomery Wards Catalog p.
The first Marx trains used the old Joy Line coupler, so the first had what is referred to as a swing-peg coupler that mated with the Joy Line couplers:.
The first CV had other distinctive features besides the swing-peg coupler. Some have a cover over the bottom of the motor, but this feature was discontinued by the second year, also:. The windup motor featured a small grinding wheel with a flint that threw sparks out the stack, as well as a bell that dinged as the locomotive ran down the track.
The sparker was used for many years, up to the advent of plastic shell Marx locomotives, and the bell was retained to the end of Marx production.
A screw in key was used for the first few years of Marx production, as well as 10 spoke diecast drivers. There are a myriad of other details and variations in the mechanical CV's, but I think I've rambled on long enough for this post!
I have been collecting Marx tinplate trains for a few years. I don't have a permanent layout so I only set them up at Christmas around the tree. For a couple of examples of Marx variety, here are a two different sets that have sentimental value to me The Pennsylvania boxcar is not original to the set, it is a later addition.
This train was given to my Dad for Christmas in That is the original box and instructions with the set. It also came with a bridge, 2 remote control switches, operating semaphore and enough track for a loop with passing siding and uncoupler track.
The set and accessories would have orginally come packed inside a bigger cardboard box, but it did not survive Dad's childhood. It has a controller that is powered by a 6 volt lantern battery and connects to the track with a lockon just like the AC powered trains. The cars are 4 wheel plastic, with fake trucks hiding the fact that there are just two axles per car. I still have the box, although it is in poor condition.
Wow Gary, that set is a treasure! Thanks for sharing the pictures. The clockwork CP and the clockwork are at the top of my wish list Here's a Marx set I bought two years ago. It's set , and it is probably the highest end Marx set I've got. It's an smoking and chugging engine with quite a few nice plastic cars.
It has a watt transformer and I think it came with wide radius track. I remember it was two years ago because this picture is of it running on the modular club layout at the antique tractor show which is coming up in 2 weeks. These CV's are the two oldest I have other than the green swing-peg I posted earlier.
The older is on the left; the one on the right slightly newer. How can we tell? Glad you asked! Looking at the top, you can see there is a slight difference in the shape of the domes.
On the left, is the earlier, sharper version; on the right is the later, blunter version. This happened sometime in the time frame, meaning that the engine on the left has to date around '36 or '37, the one on the right around '' Note that both of these locos still have screw-in keys, but the one on the left is a reproduction key, the one on the right is original.
Here is a view of the underside The next change Marx made was the switch from the screw-in key to the easily removeable square key More CV variations to come! I actually read about this set on Walt's Marxtin site a while ago, but I could never find one for sale. When I did, it was listed on Ebay with a non-descriptive title, and I won it dirt cheap too.
The trains and box are near mint, but the transformer is missing. This is my number one favorite set, and I don't think I'd ever sell it. Just out of curiosity, is this you James? I suppose there aren't very many people who are into Marx clockworks and 12" gauge live steam!
That is a nice set, I'm sure you will find the correct transformer for a reasonable price. The green and cream is my favorite M paint scheme, by the way. I don't have any Marx clockwork diesels yet , but I'm always on the lookout!
I do not have much to contribute, but a Marx set got me into O It was one of the 7 inch sets that was made to counter Unique's line of similar cars. It used to run and probably needs some TLC to fire it up again. I will tell more about it later. Good thread. I hope it continues and perhaps CTT will do some more Marx articles in the future. I think that puts us firmly in the same camp!
Anyway, thanks for posting the M motor pictures - it is much easier to see the housing for the wheel governor with the motor out of the body. How about a picture of the entire "snake"? For anyone that has never dealt with a wheel governed Marx clockwork, it is readily apparent why Marx quickly changed to the one inside the motor The newer motors with the internal governor have gears that spin the gov faster than the drive axle, making it much more effective at keeping the speed in check.
Also, as Gary mentioned, the wheel governors can have problems running through switches with guardrails, just like the Marx "fat wheel" single reduction electric motors I noticed that the 7" tin has been mentioned twice, but no pictures yet Jason and Mike, I would love to see photos of what you have. I only have 3 pieces of 7" tin, just enough to make a train for my lone reversing clockwork.
Gary, congratulations on getting the Berk chassis running on air Neat boxes, Marx had some wonderful artwork in the early years.
I don't have many boxes in my collection, so I always enjoy seeing pictures of them. Now to continue on with Clockwork CV's - I hope all of you Marx fans find this somewhat interesting, I'll try to keep this as brief as possible Sometime in or '39, Marx simplified the body for the clockwork Commodore Vanderbilts.
Basically, they went from two domes to just one and left off the handrails. The first artwork I have seen depicting the plain body is in the Ward's catalog on p.
The change to the plain body happened at or about the same time as the change from 10 spoke diecast drivers to the 7 spoke stamped drivers. As a side note, Marx changed from the screw-in key to the square key before going to the plain body CV.
At any rate, here are three types of pre-war windup CV's with the plain body:. Reversing windup CV's were available from to ; I haven't seen any evidence that they were produced after '40, although Marx made other reversing clockwork locomotives postwar. The only advertisement for a windup whistling CV I have seen is in the Sears Christmas catalog p.
Also, the regular CV's brake lever is straight, while the reversing CV's brake lever is bent over - I assume the bent lever makes it easier to shift from forward to reverse. On the cover of the magazine, and at the top of the page, it reads "O and S gauge for the operator and collector". So where are the articles for us Marx collectors? I'd love to see a full article about Marx, or even just something in the Collectable Classics section. I've noticed that they have also been recycling pictures from old articles in the Photo Album section of the magazine, so I plan to set up some trains and send in a picture of it.
I don't have much, but enough to take a picture of. I'm sure someone else will top this in an instant though. Plus, there is only a handful of cars, and very few are hard to come by, so I can say I have a complete collection of it with little money spent.
I have one thing say about single reduction motors:. I have to have a separate layout to run my Marx trains on, because they won't run through the Lionel switches on my Lionel layout. I do have one loop without switches on the Lionel layout, but Marx trains look lost amongst massive Lionel accessories and they disappear when passed by a string of larger O gauge freight cars.

Papa D started a very interesting discussion on another thread, one that I would like to explore further. In order to continue the discussion without "derailing" the other thread, I thought I would start this topic so we can talk about Marx windup motors in detail! Thank you Papa D! They used the same windup motor. From the underside, the motors look to have the same form and fit. I grabbed the attached photo off of eBay. Never thought of the motors being interchangeable until reading your post.
Just tried it. Easiest solution would be to just change out the cross beams. The wheels certainly look much better. So, Marx made some different versions of the windup motors. There are variations of each type except for the Riser Gear, which as far as I know only came in one style. If you swap them, it can sometimes cause the bump on the key to catch on the keyhole in the body in some positions.
That's not a big problem; sometimes it will slip past fairly easy, other times it helps to enlarge the keyhole with a round file. If you look closely at the windup , , , and late bodies, you will notice that some have the keyhole on the right side, some on the left. If the keyhole is on the left, it originally came with the Riser Gear motor, if it is on the right, it originally came with a Ratchet Motor. If you look at a with the keyhole on right, and compare it to a with the keyhole on the left, you will find the keyhole on the left is located slightly forward of the keyhole on the right to account for the minor difference in mainspring hub location between the two different types of motors.
The Marx will have oval keyholes on both sides of the body except for one very hard to find variation. The Riser Gear motor and Ratchet Gear motors wind in opposite directions, but by inserting the key from the opposite sides of the motor, they both wind in the clockwise direction There are also slight differences in the front crossmembers, depending on the loco.
As you noticed, some are different widths. The later locos tend to have the screw holes a bit further forward than the earlier models. That means that although a Riser Gear motor will go into a CV body, it can be hard to get the screws started in the front crossmember. It may be replaced, or tweaked back slightly with pliers to make it fit. Here is my V4. Please note that it ONLY includes the basic motor variations, it does not cover variations in front crossmembers, drive wheels, mounts or brake levers:.
Wheel Governor. Early Ratchet. Late Ratchet. Riser Gear. Great post with a lot of information. Will take me a bit to digest. Suspect you've given me a quest to find a windup motor type for each of your 4 catagories. Dealing with the history of Marx mechanical steam engines is quite confusion. No one reference contained all The only way to sort all this out is to describe each one with variations in chronological order as Marx numbering system seems extremely jumbled.
Yes, the Marx numbering system doesn't seem to have any rhyme or reason to it. Add to that the minimal amount of factory documentation, and it is hard to nail down the history on Marx trains in general, and their windup trains in particular.
When I wrote "Old Windup Trains", it was intended as an introduction and overview of the hobby of collecting O gauge windups, so you are correct that it isn't all-inclusive of the production of Marx - or any - manufacturer. Perhaps someday I'll be able to write some more in-depth books about various Marx windups, along the same lines as my book on the mechanical CV's. But, for now, here are the windup O gauge locomotives Marx produced It is not the same as the postwar electric locomotive. I believe that the designation is proper for the windup version, and the number is actually proper for the electric version.
Again, all the same basic body. I believe that is correct for a forward-only windup, correct for a reversing windup, M is the Mickey Mouse litho'd windup, and I think would be correct for the electric version. It is identifiable by the bump between the sand dome and steam dome by the brake lever that is needed to clear the gearing on a Riser Gear motor.
The early version circa late 40's does not have that bump. I believe that is correct for a windup, and would be correct for the electric version. I try to refer to the windups using the windup number if I know it There are many variations. The Commodore Vanderbilt had a bunch of changes and variations over its 13 year life as a windup train.
Some of these locomotives are common, some - such as the Bunny Express, windup, and CP windup - are rare and valuable. Others are rare, but not so valuable - for instance, the reversing version of the windup, or the smoking version of the Not trains but I have a set of wind-up Tin-plate Race cars by Marx.
I've seemed to missplace the track it came with, but it will be found lol. I already owned a mechanical CV and before I bought your CV booklet which in turn lead me to buying the other two. All great reads and reference material. They kind of hooked me into looking into Marx mechanical engines and six-inch, four-wheel cars more seriously. So thanks I think! Glad you enjoyed the books, good to hear they are doing what I intended If you've had a chance to look through the above list of Marx O gauge windup trains, I'm curious if you see any omissions?
By the way, you mentioned that mechanical was a bit obscure Although the electrical versions of the seem to be plentiful, the windup versions were - as far as I have been able to tell - only produced for a year.
I have examples in both riser gear and puffer ratchet motor variations. The bodies also seem to be brittle and prone to break around the mounting holes in the cylinders. The limited production and relative fragility of the bodies seems to make these very hard to find.
They are nice looking locomotives, though JamesP: Not an easy task comparing your list with my list. The resulting table is shown below. Here are the differences:. You state the is for the electric version. OWT lists a on pg I know that the GGtMT Vol 1 contains errors and model numbers and production dates are hard to pin down for anything Marx. For example, does anyone reading this post own a Marx mechanical steam engine?
Papa D. I would group all of those as one basic type of locomotive. No, that is two different locos. The is a plastic body locomotive that was available in electric and windup.
The date is incomplete, as Marx produced the late version for a few years in the early 's, overlapping the production. For instance, I have a scan of a Ward's catalog from with the for sale. The early version as seen in the picture you posted, and hard to find was - I believe - from the late 40's, and I'm not positive if they were only available as electric, or if they were also available as windups in that time frame. I'll have to search my information again The Canadian Pacific locomotive was made in electric versions for many years, but I have only found evidence of the windup versions being available in I've seen them in two different variations, with slightly different paint schemes, and different motors reversing and non-reversing.
They are very hard to find. That line has puzzled me for years. I've never seen a factory windup in person, on the internet, or advertised in any contemporary adds.
Marx did make the windup, which was also mentioned in GGtMT Vol 1 on the same page, yet doesn't give a date for it. The windup same body as the of the era has a spoked cowcatcher, and although they are rare, they do exist but, I don't have one in my collection. A windup from the late 40's would have had a solid cowcatcher. I won't say that it absolutely doesn't exist, but I haven't found any other evidence to support their existence, and even GGtMT Vol 1 doesn't have a picture of it.
A prototype windup from the factory is a possibility. You can see my homemade version on p. I would love to hear from someone that has one, and would like to see detailed pictures of it. The was used in different sets over time, I also have it in a set, and the smoking version in a set. I hope that sheds a little light on the subject - the history of Marx windup locomotives can be very confusing!
Still working on my Marx windup steam engine list. Waiting on a new reference I just purchased. In the meantime, based on the box, is this an early or late era Marlines?
