Would anyone happen to know which of these tenders goes with which of these locos?
I’m thinking the 999 is the New York Central and 666 is the Penn Central, based on the looks of the bodies and wheels.

I would try to date the locomotive , the Penn Central would have been made after 1968 ( thats when the merger happened) .

Hey GeeTee, that makes sense to me!
Sherrel that’s what I was thinking, thank you!
I also have two NYC boxcars and a matching caboose to go with them.
Guess the next thing to do is see if they run, not sure what I’m going to do with them.

Man, I have to pay better attention.....Thinking they were Lionel and not Marx.

Yes I had some Marx stuff mixed into my Lionel trains.

Here’s the whole enchilada sitting on my “temporarily permanent” display shelf.
My Dad had it in his collection of stuff. He wasn’t a train fan, more of a stuff fan.
Thanx again for the help guys!

My 999 set has a grey B&O gondola, Hartford/New Haven boxcar, the ever present silver Glacial tank car, and a red Reading caboose! Alternate years around the tree with the Bachmann G-scale.
