I have no idea... but I would guess that the weight of the locomotive might be important (unless your nephew will be sitting on it).

Having no direct knowledge, I asked a couple of friends who model live steam, they told me that will be impossible for such a small engine to pull such a weight. To get what you want you'd need at least a 5" or 7" gauge model
All th best for your Duchess

I think you're right Franco (I totally missed the gauge 1 reference in his sig)
