Clockwork Train

Jan just got home from helping her Mom move from the family home to a seniors’ apartment … lots of downsizing and hard work.
One of the bonuses was that she brought home her Dad’s Bing O gauge clockwork passenger train set similar to this:

… but with three Canadian Pacific Rochelle liveried coaches, like these:

Other accessories include a water tower, a signal, a station building, a tunnel, and some track. Everything appears in nice well loved condition, though sadly the original box has long gone.
 
We’re guessing at a date of around 1925, when he would have been 10, which seems to be confirmed by the dates of manufacture of the water tower.
 
I’ll post actual pictures when I feel well enough to unpack it properly and set it up, probably for the first time in 80-odd years.
