Marx Wagon Train Playset Series 5000 #4888 With Box and Extras. You almost need to see this to appreciate it.
I have many more photos and I can take pictures of anything if you have questions. Some items I can note as I looked at the pieces to take pictures. The box is in great condition for the age.The corners are torn open on the top part of the box, but the cardboard is strong. You can carry the set in the box and not worry about the box breaking or failing. There is some staining, age discoloration, and a couple words written on one side of the box.
The original Sears Robuck inventory sticker is still on the bottom and legible. Most of the little paper bags that the pieces are stored in are in ok shape.Some have tears or rips. The instruction sheet is in great shape for the age and complete. All five covered wagons with horses and Drivers with Whips. The metal house is in excellent condition.
None of the tabs are broken that I noticed. No real signs of rusting, no noticeable dents. One of the gray ones - the top wood/tassle looking piece is broken and hanging.Two of the indians with bows - the "string" is broken from where it connects to the top of the bow. Not a structural problem, just one of the few pieces I noticed that were "broken". Not pictured - a bag of 16 horses. Just from the weight of a few of them, not all are original to the set. I would say 4 or 5 for sure not original. Not pictured - blue and brown fence pieces, 5 green trees, 1 gray tree, some cactuses, a ladder, cattle skulls, totem, a couple other things. The condition for the age is outstanding. I will be making another listing with some other Roy Rogers toys such as the NellyBelle wagon, a Fort, a couple figurines.
