Louis Marx formed his own corporation (Louis Marx & Company, Inc.) in 1919 and began producing toys. Eventually the company became the largest toy manufacturer in the world. It was not until the early 1930's that Marx became a major player in the model train business. Although Marx competed with Lionel, Marx clearly had the inexpensive share of the market.

Just like Plasticville, many of the Marx accessories were often bought to be used with a layout dominated with Lionel equipment. Hence, many operators grew up knowing the Marx name both for toys and trains. Marx produced many metal accessories that were brightly lithographed. Many were illuminated and many had a simple operation to perform. The signals and light towers usually came in black, red, green, or chrome.

Capture the enjoyment of the 40's and 50's -- add the fascinating Marx signals and accessories that will complement your Lionel layout nicely. Show contrast to your existing collection with an item from a Lionel competitor -- buy a complete Marx set.
