Default Reservist pipe, train unit.

Took me a bit to note the engraving on the wood sides of the train and the block under the helmet. This bad boy is over 4 feet!

The wheels on the locomotive and several of the connecting pieces are made of African
water buffalo horn.
I believe the 1902/1904 block is upside down.
Nice piece.

Eow, I would never have realized that and likely I can turn the block over!

Try working it side to side first. Those things were made to come apart.
In it's life someone might have glued it.
Careful, they are fragile!

Impressive! Some of the parts come loose easily but that block is tight and I'm too clumsy to try harder!
