Marx Commodore Vanderbilt - Type 0-4-0 - 0 Gauge.
Also made in the USA by Louis Marx & Co between 1935 and 1950, this loco was very badly scratched
when i acquired it. Once the original paint was removed the metal shell was found to be in very good
condition. These engines are fitted with a bell and an abrasive wheel which rubs against a lighter flint, so
when in motion, sparks fly from the chimney and the bell chimes. This particular version is fitted with
the non-reversing motor.
