    HWN stands for Heinrich Wimmer, Nuremberg. This train probably dates to the 1950's since the transition to plastic took place in the 1960's.

    Beautiful condition and I particularly love the litho on the engine.

    It's a little difficult to tell the scale from your pictures, but it looks like it could be "O" gauge (track would measure 1 1/4" wide).

    Hope this helps.
