Here is the infamous Marx whistle which was produced to compete with Lionel's whistle
tender. Having had both in my train collecting I can tell you that this one is more
reliable, sounds better, is easier to operate and easier to maintain. None of that
engineering overkill employed by the little lion!
This one is still in it's original

As usual another version of the Marx whistle has surfaced. As can be seen above the
lithographed whistle is made from the same tooling (or was extremely well copied) as the
Marx whistle. While the litho does not wear the Marx logo the train depicted looks
something like a British Marx Coronation.
