RARE SPACE ROCKET EXPRESS TIN TOY MONORAIL LINEMAR JAPAN 1950'S. Cool vintage Rocket Express Space Monorail made by Linemar (Marx Toys' Japanese division). This battery-operated toy is a metallic blue combination of rocket and monorail toy. The Rocket is 10 long and has 16 passengers, 2 conductors, lightning bolt red strips down the sides and futuristic red tail fins with tail lights.
This one does not have a lighted headlamp - it is just red plastic. The rocket is well worn. The battery compartment is clean and nice. 1 Monorail Car the Rocket Express.Battery (D) is not included. To build the monorail, connect the pylons (the green brackets in the photo) with the metal rails.
The Rocket travels along the spring tensioned rails; large round extensions on top of the rocket hold the motor drive. It has two modes: forward, and reverse. The control lever, which is on the underside near the nose cone, moves easily. This one works as is.
It moves at a reasonable pace, and gets stuck if it has to move slightly uphill. The metal supports bow very slightly. If you wanted it to move fast, apparently a rubber grip on the front wheel can be replaced professionally. Otherwise, these older toys with worn/dried/out grips can drag or move very slowly on the track.
