I have not seen the LGB cars behind the FA-1 know whether they're the same general size. They're about the same proportions as LGB's F3, but that's oversized (closer to 1:26). Having said that, I find the LGB streamline cars to be a bit chunky and squat, so I'm personally not a huge fan of them as it is. For my money, if you're looking to get streamlined cars, go with USA Trains' streamliners. They're pricey, but worth it.

Later,

Agreed, but make sure that your track-work is good because the Aristo streamliners are prone to uncoupling (with Kadees) and derailment on "twisty" track.

You can see an AristoCraft A-B pulling their streamliners in my video. Note how I modified the trailing car adding the lighing and drumhead. IIRC, my article was featured in Garden Railways Magazine.
