Interesting, I know very little about Marx. Thanks for posting.

 Well good, for there is a lot more to come. Also Great Marx videos. Got to get some Marx HO videos done.

I don't think that orange/red and black #LV 25000 is prototypical, but it is a very cool looking HO model

Henry ; the LV 2 bay hopper is one of the easiest to find at train shows. I have a few.

 
I have several postwar Lionel LV hoppers, but they are maroon. I have several in N scale also, but I don't think I have any in HO.
