As the loco has tinplate-suited wheels I thought about using old O-gauge chassis and just putting a proper body on top.
So I am looking for ideas.
I have some short four-wheeled chassis in the box.
One wagon should be a flat one, another could be a brake van.
Making the wagons as wide as the loco would look strange.
What do you think are the right dimensions (width, height)?
As my daughter will play with it I am not looking for an extremely detailed wagon.
However the whole train should look plausible.
The PS ones are lovely kits, and very good value, but definitely on the small side, I don't think they'd suit the loco.
Given that she's on the large side for 16mm, I'd be tempted to change the scale, to 7/8ths, and treat the loco as a 15" loco, like Arthur Heywood's "Katie" and "Ursula". There's some great "Estate Railway" rolling stock you could emulate:
Just a thought...
