The shape and lithography is very similar to the the larger GNR 4-4-2 Carette locomotive alongside.
Typically of Georges Carette, the lithography is very, very nice - at first sight it appears the the railings above the tender have spaces punched out in the tinplate beneath them, but the sides are simple continuous tinplate, with the "spaces" coloured in a lighter colour to give the impression of light shining through.
