Marx 34 Pc Railroad and Construction Set - Conclusion

In the late 1950's/early 1960's the Louis Marx Co. included a 34pc cardboard village with some of its 3-rail O-gauge train sets. The various buildings were  rather smalll but actually worked quite well alongside other makers cardboard buildings like Built-Rite. Last year Toys & Stuff posted scans of the set pieces but quite frankly I goofed and never built them up or photographed them. Well, I tried to rectify the omission this year and started featuring photos of the built-up set back on July 19. Today we're going to finish this thing up by posting the people, trees, signs, and the last big structure - the Railroad Station. Enjoy!

Here's the large envelope the set came in (a bit tattered though)

And here we have all the pieces set up
