Louis Marx & Co. was a popular American manufacturer of toys and trains founded in 1919 by brothers Louis and David Marx. During its production years, Marx made both electric and clockwork trains in multiple sizes, 6 of which operated on 'O' or 'O-27' gauge track, and HO gauge trains as well. The company usually supplied products at the price niche below Lionel and American Flyer, making it popular with consumers who could not afford those brands. Marx train production started in 1934 with the purchase of Joy Line trains. Prior to that acquisition, Louis Marx was a commissioned sales representative for the Girard Company's Joy Line products. Louis Marx & Co. issued train sets under several brand names including Allstate, Marlines, Linemar and Stream Line. Marx toys have the reputation of being one of the most recognized, respected and popular names among today's antique toy collectors.
