It is, generally speaking, a bobsleigh, identified by the two short runners on each side instead of one long one. This was thought to create a smoother ride on a longer bodied sleigh, by the independant movement of the individual runners. As far as the upper carriage it looks like a freight hauling buck board.
A lot of bobsleighs had a black or green body with a different color under carriage, maroon or black. Fancier sleighs had straw colored pin striping on the body. But of course any color combination that looks good would work.
