Marx #500 Army Supply Train Locomotive

Marx #500 Army Supply Train Locomotive

Marx was a large toymaker and made much more than just trains.  Another area of Marx production was military toys, particularly in the time before and after WWII (few metal toys were produced during the war due to wartime restrictions).  The Army Supply Train this locomotive was intended for was an attempt by Marx to connect its popular train line with its military toys in this era.  The crossover attempt was not overly successful, and this locomotive, and others like it, are relatively rare today.
