This is the train set with the cars (types) it came with. From what I can tell and found on the Marx site. Is this set should have come with a different tank car. A Rocket fuel tank car. It is the most common when colored white. The ones with blue, red, and yellow, parts are harder to find.  
 This is a different set in another way because when sold by Marx, it came in different road names with switching loco and caboose matching. All had the same set number. The two cars were the same in all sets. ( NYC, WP, RI, Santa-Fe, and mine is NH which isn't listed on Marx site. )

*** Here's a new one I got yesterday in Hamburg PA. A Roco 2-10-0, Decapod! DB-58-2059. Laying in a dealer's tray in appeared to be broken. The loco and tender were apart but still wired together. The cab and the backhead lay in the tray. When I asked about it the dealer said 30.
 A low price for an almost complete engine. The pilot was missing front bumpers and a lamp cover. Maybe I can get them someplace. I put it all back together and on a test track at home and it ran and the directional lighting worked. It is a good buy for 30.  
** This is a shorter Decapod but a modern one as far as steam engines go. A stocky little brute of an engine. It has a tender drive so drivers turn easily, with no restriction. I can't figure out yet how to remove boiler, to properly put the cab and back head on. With used engines, there is usually something to do.

An Interesting little locomotive. It seems a step back to simplicity. Some of the first locomotives of the 1830's and early 40's were very much in that design.

edit 8-21-17 Add photo of Gilbert NP F3A. Other Gilberts F3A's are in nearby posts so it is just another one to compare.

That's an interesting model of an early F3. It must have been designed before Lionel's O gauge F3.

* Because I went back to assist in getting a good answer for Henry and acquired the link above, then I came back and this site threw away all I have composed. It was a large paragraph. I guess henry the link will have to do. You could go there and look it up. You will see that L-3003 is one of the last few Gilbert F3's given Gilbert numbers and that was 1956. I have B&O F3a 421 it I think is 1946. That is a 10 year period and may help with the design date Henry spoke of.

It is better to compose complicated replies in a text editor and then paste it to the forum post editor rather than rely on your browser window to keep intact. Most browsers don't cache text that is in web page FORM elements so if you accidentally hit anything that changes the window contents you lose the partially composed post.
 
I didn't mean for you to go to all that trouble Frank. I was just going by the three porthole sides and high fans on the Gilberts while the Lionel F3's had two porthole sides and later low fans. I think Lionel's were done in 1948 with help from GM/EMD.
