The whimsy and imaginative design of this loco exemplify the early toy makers style and adds greatly to the folk art appeal. An unusual form, this particular, early style American locomotive features the large heart shaped drive wheels in front with steam chests located under cab window.Another unusual feature is the bell located between the cab and tender, which is activated by a large center wheel with a paddle that is struck when the toy rolls along the floor.

Four fixed wheels on tender appear to have been reattached (one is de-tached now) and repainted, possibly older replacements. Please see pictures for detail, assets, flaws and condition.
