You are looking at a great diecast steam locomotive from the good old days. This 1950's O/027 steam engine is ready for duty.
The Marx 666 steam engine started production in the mid-1950's. It has the puffing smoke--the mechanism underneath that pushes the smoke to the beat of the wheels as it rolls down the track.
This 666 also came with a Double Reduction Motor.
The Double Reduction Motor is a really neat. Many of our Marx engines scream down the track so fast they are like slot cars ready to take flight off of the track. However, Marx added a set of gears to some of their engines to tone that down a little and make it more realistic. What does this mean?
- It means you can crawl the engine a little more slowly
- It means it probably won't take flight off the layout
- It means you can PULL more cars
- And it means that the engine will more easily navigate switches by other makers such as Lionel (Single reduction motors have drive gears all the way to the edge of the wheel which can interfere with some switches).
There is no tender is this listing, but let me know, and I can list whatever tender you want on ebay just for you. We have lots of different Marx tenders.
