2nd Annual Convention (2000)

The Kruger Street Toy & Train Museum served as the host site once again for the Marx Toy & Train Collectors National Convention on June 16 and 17, 2000. Over sixty collectors attended from as far away as Los Angeles, Seattle, and Texas! The swap meet was also about double the size of last year, and all had a great time. Former Marx R & D employees Robert Emblem and Harold Loy spoke with the group on Friday, and a tour of the grounds of the Glendale, WV Marx plant brought an added surprise as the plant’s new owner took us inside for a personal tour! Make plans to join us in 2001; the dates for the 3rd Annual convention are going to be June 15 & 16, 2001. Registration materials will be posted at a later date.marx2000
