    :) I can see it know CB no longer will have a living room, kitchen, bathroom or bedroom. :) It will just be one very large layout. ;)

    Well, I'm off the hook with the wife. :D
    She thinks it will make a very nice Christmas train once it's painted up. I think I will probably either sell or trade the auto car since it doesn't fit in to the whole Christmas theme too well. If anyone has a Marx boxcar or gondola from the same era and is interested in a trade, PM me.

    I like it too. It may not get traded after all.
    Dave seems to think this set was a little more special than most of the four wheel sets so we're doing some research on it.
    Nope. Red and gold. ;)
    If it gets painted. Now I'm waiting to see what Dave comes up with in his search and I'm also going to ask some questions about it in the Marx yaHoo! group. I don't want to mess it up if it's going to become a collectable.
    I'll post pics as soon as I get it. the guy shipped it out Saturday by priority mail so I'm hoping to have it by Tuesday or Wednesday.
    No problem. :)
