yes, in the meantime I had a look at plenty of pictures, mainly in austrian fora/from austrian modelling mates. The height (of the cab) is about 1950mm. I'm still waiting for the correct measures. The older AEG akkuloks reach a height of about 2000mm. Sure this loco will be at "the limit" of 15" gauge - but on "this side" (if necessary I would lower the roof a tiny bit as an ultima ratio) ...
The locos are running on 500mm track (is that what you call 18"?), it might run on 15" as well (regauged), when I look at photos showing "the inner parts".
The company GEBUS former company of Mr. Ing. Struppe built a loco for the 381mm "Praterbahn" in Vienna as well ...

Did no one notice the brushes on the end of the two locos in the Adrian Foster photo?
Anybody know what they are there for?

There are/were - at least - shown two different hospitals: The one with the AEG + Struppe locos ist (re-)named Geriatriezentrum am Wienerwald (former Versorgungsheim Lainz), the other one must have been the former lunatic assylum Steinhof, Otto-Wagner-Spital:
