You are looking at a colorful Marx B&LE boxcar with the plastic fixed coupler. The neat thing about this one is that it is a metallic CANDY APPLE RED version--a good one to add to the collection.
The Bessimer boxcars are like the (Lionel) 6464s of the Marx world. They are very collectible and come in many different colors and variations. It is fun to collect them all.
This one is meant to go with your 6" rolling stock. As you can see, it has playwear.
