I know, I need a better camera, it does not like taking photos in low light conditions.I wish i had taken photos of the engine as I got it and then through the restoration.
For the price you would spend on gas to go 300 miles you could buy a half dozen Marx 999's on eBay. If you have any question about this Buy THIS Now Classified Ad Item, please contact the member. The handrails and bell can be cleaned with an anti-rust solution, or you can just use fine grit sandpaper (600 or greater). I already had the tender for it from my grandpa's old Marx and AF trains, and it still needs restoration.
Be sure to give the steel parts a clear coat when the rust is gone if you don't paint them, because rust and tarnish can reform rather quickly in the right conditions. The next (and I believe most common) version had a simple, fully sealed pilot with the rivets on what appears to be horizontal braces.


My best job so far has been this Marx 666:There was a lot of rust on it, it was missing the lead and trailing trucks, and a drive wheel. The fifth had the Marx logo on the cab instead of the smokebox, and the sixth had no Marx logo at all. The wire handrails and bell are stainless-steel, which seems to only tarnish instead of rust.
Set also includes transformer, 3 curved track, 14 straight tracks, two (2) switches and control panel. The paint seems very durable, and after existing for around 65 years, it only needed a little touch-up in a couple spots. The coal load is very flat, and the only separate detail part is the stamped ladder on the back. The whole thing is painted high-gloss black, with the yellow New York Central lettering and Marx logos printed on.


At 13 volts with a 50 watt Marx transformer, the top speed in O was around 130 MPH, and in S, 175 MPH. Through the whole speed range, just about all you can hear is the wheels on the track, some gear noise, and the hum of the AC power in the motor.
The drawbar pull is enough to pull more than ten Marx cars, but I wouldn't recommend more than five or six.
