Please refer to sellers other Vintage Train Listings. Toy Train History: In Christies Toy Trains by Hugo Marsh he describes the early Marklin golden age paint process: Each tin plate component was hand formed and soldered together by skilled tinsmiths, Then spray - primed and hand - painted by a succession of painters, with a session in the oven between each coat. The best painters, usually women, undertook the last and most complicated phases of detailed paint work and lining. Finally, The pieces were coated with a natural shellac lacquer and baked again. These processes combine to give the thick, lustrous finish, surpassed only by Bing at it's peak.
