Check out the milk can load
CHECK OUR OTHER LISTINGS FOR SOME MARX MILITARY / ARMY TRAIN FUN as well as more 8 wheel six inch cars.
You are looking at an original Louis Marx CRI&P gondola with added milk can load and insert. This is a colorful car that was put out prewar with the automatic couplers. This is the eight wheel version with the nice journal box trucks.
The load included with this one is the four milk cans and the insert to hold them in place. The wooden cans are reproduction. I am not sure about the insert. The added insert and cans were added by the previous owner who liked to have different cars for his milk train!
If you are a serious Marx collector, you know there were a few different variations of this car. Make sure you have them all!
- Marx number 2552
- Car number 552
- Three rail O / 027
- 6" tinplate flat car
- Rock Island
- With ADDED milk can load
- Automatic couplers (aka one way couplers)
- Trucks with journal boxes
- Metal wheels
- Made in the USA
CONDITION: Light wear to car in the form of some scratches and rubs in a few places. Good automatic couplers. Eight wheel trucks look great. Cardboard insert may be original--hard to tell. It does show a little handling. The load looks new--it is repro milk cans.
