My brother's first train was a Lionel 666. I believe it was a 242 setup. Does anyone still have one of these trains or know where to find one for sell? Thanks for any help.

Was Marx making the train for Lionel or was this a totally separate company? The train was definitely a Lionel. My parents bought it new and it was in the box as a set. This would have been middle to early 60's. I may have the numbers wrong I thought it said 666 for the numbers.

I saw the shell (boiler) for a 666 engine for sale in an antique shop in TN about 4 weeks ago; it was a town north of Nashville. It was definitely a 666, and I believe it was all metal.

Wow, the B&M picture has Baldwin Style Discs?
I think they are cast, I have down the street for sale for 55 in an Antique shop. It is where my Cola Santa car came from. One on ebay is ending at $9.99 with 3 cars.

I agree on the 'cast'....I remember the shop owner commenting that it was heavy. I'd have bought it if I had any use for it. Couldn't convince myself the gf would go for a "Railroad from Hell" scenario, though. *L*

The 666 is a nice Marx engine. After this post I did end up owning two of them with metal shells. One is still in non working order. :rolleyes: I appreciate you finding an older post. There is just so much that has already been covered and can be found if someone is determined enough to find it.:appl: Who Knows we may hear from B&M again.

Who Knows we may hear from B&M again.
You think so?
Have you heard from him since his last log on? It was 01-15-2012 05:45 PM it will be TWO years soon.

It seems like someone logged in Tworails account and at the same time logged in under the admin above it. (one in the same :smokin:)
Though did not say anything. :dunno: It was 12-06-2013 10:49 PM, the last time we heard from tworail was back in 2012. And even then I don't think it was him, I think someone added it to try to shut me up from asking.

He did say this WAY back then, and that was the last we heard from him. (though I am not convinced it was even him)

B&M has not logged on for a LONG time.

It was right after the train give away that they both stopped coming to "their" site?:smokin:

Tworail was the G man here, he could probably answer some of the G questions we have had.
And maybe update his G scale manual list some. It seems that the G scale trains numbers that some are asking for the manual are never in his list.

He has answered my e mails. I just haven't had time to see him. He recently graduated and maybe fell in love too. Young kids are always busy today.
OK, then mabey I am wrong in my assumptions.

I guess your talking about B&M?
He has not been here for years now.

The time it took to answer your e mails is longer then stopping in to say hello?
At least around the holidays?
I guess we can add TJ in the MIA files now too.

Heck T, you have been awful quiet the last few months also?:dunno:
But at least we see you every so often.

May Santa Claus bring you the biggest tube of epoxy that you ever saw. :p
Along with a few bags of coal for your RR. :D
