if you look at the contents of the Train surgery folder ( Hint: click on Train surgery above), you will see that the first fixed thread is called "Minitrix Service/repairs:

the first page has comments about a helpful  website, and reply #8 has a link to your answer.

Green was one of the tender pickups taking power to the loco.

The Minitrix A4 was headlamp fitted originally, so depending whats there, the loco lamp may be original. Of course, it may also have been butchered or modified by previous owner.
