A red and silver clockwork, gauge 0 model by Marx, of Union Pacific's 1934 streamlined M-10000 diesel train (nicknamed "The Tin Worm").

The "worm" was styled by Pullman engineer Martin P Blomberg. It had an aluminium alloy bodyshell, and was brown with curved yellow side-panels and a rounded rear end that looked very wormlike indeed.

The piece is marked with the Marx "cross in circle" logo, and "MADE IN ENGLAND".
