Marxtin is dedicated to the hobby of collecting and operating Marx tin lithographed trains. I believe that Marx lithographed toys and trains represent a high point of tin toy production, available to the working class children of America, in the twentieth century.

The Louis Marx Co. manufactured inexpensive, yet durable, toys and trains from sometime in the 1920's until 1972, when it was purchased by the Quaker Oats Co. Thanks to Louis Marx, for over fifty years millions of American boys and girls, who otherwise would not have been able to afford them, had beautiful and imaginative toys to play with!

The purpose of this site is to showcase some of these toys and trains. On the page links to the right you will find unusual Marx and Joy Line trains. These are trains from my collection (and some others) that don't often show up for sale and might not be pictured in the value guides.
If you have something of Marx or other tinplate that is remarkable or unusual, and you would like to show it to others, contact me at the email link at the bottom of the page. If you have something that you're not sure of, send me a picture and I'll try to help you identify it. If you can attach a .jpeg or .gif file I can download it easily. If you don't have a digital camera or scanner but can send me a photograph, I'll copy it and upload the image. If it is appropriate for my site, I'll post it with your name.
I am also seeking images of train layouts featuring Marx trains.
