I could use a good reference to Marklin tinplates of the 1930's... One 2-rail clock-spring set needs research.

Also... who would have made a clock-spring driven locomotive labelled "Made in West Germany"?
... clue is WEST, indicating post-1948. Puzzle is what manufacturer survived to produce this?

Many thanks to whomever might direct me!
