While no markings, we would place this toy early 1900's. Based on other pressed steel trains we have seen in the past, of a similar size, it looks to be an American early friction toy, probably manufactured in Dayton, Ohio.
A large toy that measures approximately 16 1/2" long, 4 1/2" wide and 7" tall. Considering its age, it is in good condition overall, with play wear and paint loss. It is actually amazing that it still has the front cow catcher and all its wheels. Original paint. No box. Most of the ones sold on eBay and elsewhere are missing a wheel or two. PLEASE SEE PHOTOS FOR CONDITION AND PLAY WEAR.
