The base has a distinct Bing look to it Dennis however the firehouse and boiler are different.
My example shown here has 1913 under the base.

I wonder if ‘Anaconda’ is the name of or type of brass/brazing rod that that shaft was made from and was left on the piece. I have seen other rods with similar lettering.

It’s a German made Renown 101  ;)

Haha, I have no clue, but agree with Walter on the base

Certainly looks German to me, but how much toy steam production actually occurred during the WWI war years I wonder? Seems like brass in particular would be hard to come by for toy makers!

I don't have a clue on the model or maker.

But, a nice engine.

Is it a runner?

Anaconda Copper was a large company founded in Butte Montana in the 1800's. I the 1920's they bought American Brass in Connecticut. They supplied copper products to the world.

Actually, it does not look like a German product to me...

Apart from the base, that is.

Looking forward to seeing a reliable identification and the video of its first run...
