Can anyone tell me anything about this gon? 

The one I have is similar, except the floor is silver.  Rather unusual in that the metal is heavy gauge, more like Tonka than tinplate.  A floor toy, perhaps?  It does track and run on O27...

Unless it's uber rare, I'm prolly going to respray the body orange and add it to the RTC work train.

They are referenced as Marx Std Gauge, but that is not accurate. They are Marx floor toys.

Well, this one has been "narrow gauge"  modded to take Marx O scale wheelsets...


(Three guesses who decided to photobomb the shoot.  The first two don't count.) 


The jump start pack at rear shows I don't just work on trains... 


Long wheelbase notwithstanding, it runs fine on O27 track, and the tab couplers work fine with my prewar American Flyer...
