The Marx 1666 is a plastic 2-4-2 locomotive, similar to Lionel's locomotives, but its a much more dependable locomotive and its motor is much easier to work on. The Marx was designed to run longer and to be fixed when it did finally wear down. It came in several variations. The two most common varieties are all black, or black with a white stripe and numbering. Theres no particular difference in value between these two variants. A third variant is an olive-drab Army green, worth 2-4 times as much as a black one. A fourth variant, listed in price guides, has the side-smoking motor out of the plastic 1666. Sometimes the rear truck is missing, making it a 2-4-0 locomotive. Its possible a small number of 1666s were produced this way, o. Even as 0-4-0s, to reduce costs. It works fine this way, or perhaps even more reliably, without front and rear trucks to derail, though it looks more complete as a 2-4-2. The Marx 1666 is the second largest steam locomotive Marx produced, and like it's big brother the 333, it has smoke. Its a good all-around locomotive if. You need to maintain a train yourself, the Marx 1666 isnt a bad choice. It comes apart easily and there arent too many tricks to getting it back together either. If you need a good locomotive that will run well on O27 track, the Marx 1666 is a very good choice.
Marxs tender is incompatible with Lionel couplers, but the 1666 will connect to a Lionel tender so you can run it with Lionel cars. As for the number, how Marx came to choose the number is a frequent question. Louis Marx was Jewish but attended Episcopal churches, so he was likely aware of the baggage associated with the number.The story I heard is that someone said the locomotive smoked like the devil, so the number was something of an inside joke. Marx was fond of 3-digit numbers.
The diecast steamers were all numbered 333, 666, and 999, while the low-end steamers were numbered 400, 490, 591, 592,593 and 594; the tin Canadian Pacific locomotive was numbered 391, and Marx had tin steamers numbered 833, 897, 898, and 994.
