A green and brown cabless GNR 4-2-0 locomotive No.130, with green six-wheel tender.

The design places the driver and fireman directly between the two large (enclosed) drivewheels.

The original loco was built in around ~1840.

This is part of a collection that shows the development of early steam locomotive design. The models are all an "approximately 00/HO-gauge sized" mixture of 3.5 and 3mm scale, and broad-gauge locomotives, on 32mm track, and are probably a mix of modified white metal kits and scratch-built parts.
