Marx Trains 1958 "allstate" A-b-a E-8 Set 9638, No Box, Track Or Transformer:
Made only in 1958, this set somewhat hard to find. This is a "Put together" set that I had a great deal of enjoyment finding and upgrading.
But finding an original box proved to be impossible. I did not try to find any track or a transformer even though both are fairly common.
The Diesel engines have the original steps, show very little play wear. The power "A" unit runs well, lights and has the traction tires intact. The slide shoe does show some wear. I'd rate the engines as C6 to C7.
The cars show some play wear but are intact. All have tilt couplers and "F" trucks. These were considered deluxe cars.
The boxcar and stock car have all doors intact. The flat with the green tractors has a little rust on the load clips.
The only car I could not upgrade was the caboose. It has 1 step broken. I tried to show it in the last pic.
I'd rate the cars (Except the caboose) as C6 to C7. Because its broken I'd have to rate the Caboose C4.
Please, if you have any questions, ask.
