Marx #1440 Crossing Shanty and Man w/o Light

The Marx #1440 Crossing Shanty and Man has been a staple of toy train layouts since at least 1951 when it sold for the a whopping $3.87. It may actually date to before 1951, but I don't have any catalogs prior to that. The Shanty came in only two versions that I'm aware of - with and without light. Enjoy!
