M10003 Union Pacific Streamliner

For some reason Marx decided to produce this as a floor toy, not a train set. I guess it was because Wyandotte had a similar floor toy that was painted silver, or silver and blue and Marx wanted to compete for those dollars. The YN. toy is kind of sad looking by comparison.

This M10003 is dificult to find. The orange and yellow work nicely together but the one piece construction makes this hard to play with as a floor toy. At about 14" long with no articulation, it doesn't turn well. I remember oversized fixed length toys from my childhood. They just didn't play well!

There is also a British version of this toy. Billy, Paul, Bryan, Graeme ... are you hearing me?
