Marx Trains – Coal Dump Station – The Easter Bunny’s Surprise

Marx Trains : The Easter Bunny’s Surprise — Click “more info” for more information about this video — Original and custom painted Marx 6″ tin trains are used with imperfect editing trickery and a quirky plot, in the spirit of the early cartoons and silent films, to tell a silly Easter story. Most of the Marx trains in this clip were made from 1936 to the 1950’s. The Green CV and the Grey CV with tender are custom repaints as a salute to some very rare Marx pieces. Almost all the accessories, track, switches and transformers are Marx. The plaster houses and composition Trico figures are prewar “Made in Japan” accessories. The Easter Bunnies and Chicks are from The Old Country Gift Shop – 355 Roncesvalles Ave, a nice German chocolate shop.

Marx Trains – Saint Patrick’s day | The Pogues – Dirty Old Town

A Marx Commodore repaint project, decorated for Saint Patrick’s day with LED shamrocks from Guinness Stout. Also shown is a custom CN 591 and tender pulling some Line Mar automobiles. One of my favourite songs by The Pogues, Dirty Old Town helps celebrate Saint Patrick’s day. This video is a little rough, but it was a good learning experience, finding camera angles and ideas for my next video, The Easter Bunny’s Surprise.

Marx Trains & K-Line Big Boy, 60 car run

I think this is the limit, at least on my layout. I am amazed that I have been able to get 60 old style tin cars to stay on the track but what a hoot. Pulling power for the Big Boy does not seem to be an issue. It is just getting all of the cars around the 54″ curves. At all times it is pulling through three curves with one being a 180 degree loop back.
