Not much info regarding prototype. It is loosely based on a real railcar but shortened and adapted to narrow gauge. Only reservation I have is the boiler. Complicated and huge for 45mm. The boiler is almost as large as for a 3.5" engine.

I agree and think the boiler could be made as a simple center flue and it would steam fine, 20-30Psi would power this model just fine. Looks like a typical 16mm model to me no need to run fast.
