That looks like it's a live steam locomotive, but I have no idea of it's manufacturer.
It is a model of PO 3511. But I cannot find the manufacture either. Here is some more pictures.

You will never get that running !
How much do you want for it? :p

Sorry, I can't help you any, I have been searching, if I run across something I will post it here.

Do you have the tender? (coal car)

You know your missing wheels for it?
Looks like standard gauge?
Or G scale?

That looks like a live-steam engine that isn't going to run again without A LOT of work by someone who is skilled in that kind of building (live steam).

Definitely European and missing the tender.

Probably good for a conversation piece, but not much more.

I don't know about the other scales but G scale had a number of live steam locomotives. Good luck.

Hi. The full size loco was built for the Paris-Orleans railway so was French and looks like a 4-6-2 wheel arrangement or 231 as the French call it. I cannot find a reference to this particular loco.
As the French are not well known for live steam models it is probably German so possibly made by Marklin or Bing of Nuremberg.
What is the track gauge - measure between the wheel flanges. 45mm ( 1.75 approx) = Gauge 1 and 32mm ( 1.25 in approx) = Gauge 0.
These are common gauges for spirit fired live steam locos like yours and will help in narrowing the search.
Colin.

Good luck in your quest. Many live steam locomotives have been, and still are custom built.

It does look like British prototype..And not only is it missing its pilot and pony trucks, it's missing a tender !..
If you don't foresee getting it working again (ugh!) I'd put it on a shelf on a comparable size piece of track, with tender, and scale plastic trucks (just floating/not really attached), as a display...
