I recently acquired some boxes of grungy old O-gauge trains at an estate sale. Some of the more interesting items were these Marx 3/16" scale metal cars. The 333 loco is missing side rods and needs work. The tender is a heavy die-cast item. The metal cars are dirty with surface wear and rust, but are not seriously deformed.
I haven't been able to find much info online about old Marx sets and am hoping someone can give us background on these items?

Does Marx 3/16" scale still count as "tinplate" ?
