Marx Military Flatcar Load - Tank Gray-Silver HP

A new acquisition to the fleet is this original Marx flatcar load tank in gray-silver HP. Marx often times molded their plastic train accessories (and this was made as a flatcar load) in a muted gray-silver color. This example, like several already posted, was painted to look more 'realistic' probably by some well meaning youngster and I have no plans on removing the paint because of the charm it adds to the piece. Enjoy! Opa Fritz and Oma Bettina

This photo almost makes the tank look silver but's just the way the light is shining on it

Notice the Marx logo under the turret

Some comaprison shots of an original Marx (L) with a Marx of Miami repo (R) Note that the repo tank is more silver-colored than it is gray
