Marx Toy Trains Rock!!


Marx Toy Trains

Michael has collected Marx toy trains since 1979. He has completed an operating layout to go with his display.

He has over 500 pieces of rolling stock and over 300 accessory items, but doesn't have enough shelf or track space to show it all. Below are just some sample pics from the display shelving.

The space in the room is only about 12x14 feet. The new layout is in a "U" configuration with two 4x8 tables .. two 3x8 tables .. one 4x4 table. There are 6 main lines to run up to 6 trains at a time. Even with 156 feet of display shelving on 2 walls and a number of sidings for additional display, only about a half of the collection is unpacked for display! Michael could use a room the size of his garage! Haha!!
