Marx #T7-34 U.S. Armed Forces Training Center Barracks

Last Monday we looked at the Marx #T7-34 olive drab Barracks which came in their Army-centric training center playsets. Around 1956 they started offering multi-service training center playsets and subsequently started offering the two-story barracks in white with yellow trim with a large medallion on the roof proclaiming "U.S. Armed Forces Training Center'. This version has a separate fire escape. The original fire escapes were yellow hard plastic, but mine is a repo and is yellow soft plastic.but completes the structure quite nicely. The repo is available from 'The Hobby Bunker' whose site is in the links at the right of the page. It's a terrific structure and a great addition to the tin lovers collection. Enjoy!
