After I posted that and was re-looking at the picture, I figured that was the reason why.

I restore Marx Tinplate. I just love the looks of the Marx trains. Once you get it into your noodle that Marx are not scale, but toys, then you can really enjoy them.

I'm not sure--how can you tell the difference?

Here is my marx mercury i cleaned up that has a working sparking mechanism.
I cleaned up shell by a lite polishing and cleaned up the motor .

It really runs nice and sparks as i tested it, the top lever disengages the grinding wheel gear from the large gear , the large gear always spins as it is engaged to the double geared motor unless unscrewed off motor frame which i did.

I read that this was marx first double gear motor , i do run it but without the sparker engaged as i also read these were known to overwork the motor and often found nowadays with the mechanism missing.
