It has proportional 2.4ghz radio control, but the drive turned out with too high a top speed at first attempt, so I had to add in a reducing gear.But there was room to do that without nightmares! I could get to love the more roomy boilers, tanks and cabs of 0-16.5.I wondered if it was too broad for its gauge but, on checking, I found the Vale of Rheidol locos have a width over four times their gauge and this is just on three.
Behind is the Faller Hit Train O scale coach, still on its 32mm gauge wheels.
I have seen something... Would this be close to your loading gauge as potential for conversion? It is a Postman Pat train. It seems to be of a similar size to the Faller coaches but I've not measured them. If anything it may be a tiny bit big then small.
