At the conclusion of World War I, in 1919, Luis Marx started a toy business. The company was called Marx and Company and was co-founded by Louis brother, David Marx. The company's slogan was to, "give the customer more toy for less money." The company had a long run of success, surviving both the Great Depression and the Second World War, before it closed its doors in 1978; six years after Louis Marx sold the toy company to Quaker Oats. During the Great Depression, the Marx Company had $500,000+ in debt, a debt that was more then covered by its $3.2 million in possessions.

Some citizens feel that during its prime, Marx and Company actually sold more toy trains then any of the other toy companies. The initial train they Marx-trainsold was the Joy Line, which they sold on commission for the Girard Company. Soon after his company started selling the Joy Line, Louis Marx arranged for the Girard Company to create a toy train specifically for Marx and Company. Eventually the Girard Company was bought out by Marx.

In the market, Marx trains were perceptible because they were normally smaller and cheaper than the ones made by the Lionel Company and American Flyer. The Marx Company designed electric toy trains that marked an open frame motor, this motor had a gear that is fixed to one end of the axle. The company hardly ever varied from this design. Post World War II, Marx and Company began to make trains out of a plastic material. More pricey versions of Marx toy trains included a smoker that heated smoke fluid to produce smoke.
