use an LGB 0-4-0 loco as the engine and add a rack gear to it myself.

Is that possible?
It's possible, but likely to be very difficult. An LGB 0-4-0 is not a very large loco.

For a start, you have to calculate the diameter and pitch of the rack cog so that when it is engaged the regular wheels are still turning at the same rate and not slipping. Then you have to mount it and connect it to the driving axle(s).

I'd be inclined to buy one from LGB.
