An early 0-4-0 steam-powered gauge 0 model locomotive with tender, made by Bing circa ~1904.

Details

The loco cab and tender are dark green with white and light green lining, and the inset wheel-spoke areas are painted red.

The locomotive's boiler, steam dome, pistons, funnel and valvework/tubework are all bare metal, presumably because of concerns that the heat of the engine might damage normal paintwork.
