In my 35 years in the antique business, I have had 3 or 4 live steam engine railroad locomotives. This is really as nice as I have ever had. A live steam railroad locomotive and coal tender. I believe this is an English style locomotive with attached tender. Painted metal construction (minor paint losses) with lots of brass components; locomotive with 6 wheel tender; very nice fittings. I was told its 4 1/2 inch gauge---the distance between the wheels. Locomotive and tender is 51 inches long----I would judge the engine alone weighs 65 pounds! I have taken several photos. I really can't tell you much about the technical aspects as I really don't know much about steam engines---the boiler is brass inside the tender---guessing wood or coal? If you have any information for me----I'd appreciate it! Glad to answer any questions you might have, of course. I have a delivery person who delivers furniture nationwide and can deliver this to you. Great display presence and nice vintage look.
