Great pictures of many old and new trains!
Amongst other trains , I have been a MARX collector for years by accident. I joined TCA in 1969 and primarily collected 6464 box cars and the 622 series die cast switchers. Many times at a train meet were boxes of wonderful (sometimes) Marx tinplate trains that Lionel and AF collectors
regarded as junk and not seriously collected.
I have much Marx including prewar and JOY LINEthe predecessor to Marx.
I noted David Cook’s photos of the 1936-1938Canadian Pacific box passenger cars and An engine and tender from a later freight set. The engine and render as I expect David knows have red and yellow trim and lettering, whereas the 1936 CP passenger set had Maroon and Dulux Gold trim
and lettering. The original box in excellent condition from the late 1930 s is worth almost as
much as a 5 piece set.
These sets were sold by EATON’S Department stores across Canada. There were6 city names.on the passenger carsand a set consisted of 3 passenger cars plus engine and tender.
The toughest cars to find and are Quebec and Vancouver for Ontario collectors.
The passenger came in 4 wheel with tab and slot couplers. Deluxe sets came in 8 wheel with one way or automatic couplers.
If you would like a”passenger engine and tender” I can help you. Best Regards Frank Steele
