    SOLD - Marx 8994

    I was helping a widow neighbor clean her garage and she mentioned her husband's train set. It is a Marx 8994, in the original box. I agreed to look into its value and possibly sell it for her. I can upload pix if anyone is interested. The track is dirty, but the engine does run. (Turning...

    The Politically Incorrect thread
