Get me the can opener! There is a tin of worms around here somewhere!
Hmm... To me that bogie loco is not a true 'miniature'. It is fully enclosed, twin cabbed, built way over 'scale' loading gauge and is clearly a case of a loco being built to the maximum potential of the gauge. Ok you could go higher but it might create stability problems.
Minimum gauge possibly....

Now back to real modelling

There's a good selection in 1:25 scale, which is gnear enough.
