The first loco was a No. 40 4-4-0 with matching eight-wheel No. 40 tender. It had nickel trim in the way of domes, bell, handrails and headlight. In addition it had four nickel boiler bands The pilot truck was held in place by a long screw running up into the cast-iron boiler. The loco’s number plate was held on by two pins just below the cab windows and lettered “No. 40” in gold and it was outlined in a red and gold cartouche. The loco was japanned in black as was common then with cast-iron toys and trimmed in red and gold stripes on the steam chest, cab roof and pilot truck with a gold highlight on the boiler front. The drive wheels were painted a dark green and trimmed in gold. The pony wheels were also painted a dark green to match the drivers.
