Scale:    O scale
Theme:    Two custom locomotives
Description:    I have made some custom Marx locomotives and cars for my Minneapolis Northern Railroad, most are repaints of standard Marx locomotives, but these two are modified. The Commodore Vollrath, as I call it, is a modified Marx Commodore Vanderbilt that has a Marx double reduction motor with a smoke unit from a Marx 666 also a modified pilot truck from a 666. The MM1, the centercab diesel was made from two Marx CV shells cut apart and welded together. The only things that are not Marx parts are the headlight lenses, and the frame. The frame I made at work out of stainless steel.
