I recently got a beautiful MTH 1/48 scale UP tank car, single dome. I was lucky, because the couplers on this MTH car work great with the Lionel knuckle couplers on my other cars. When I hooked the tank car to the little switcher, it looked really ridiculous, almost like an HO engine pulling an O gauge car.
I really like the little switcher, so I think I'll just use it to pull my 1920s Lionel tinplate train of cars. The size matches up pretty nicely.
I'm away from home right now, but when I get back I'll measure one of mine and compare it with the prototype dimensions from the Model Railroader Cyclopedia of Steam. I'm pretty sure its close - these small switchers were really small, relatively speaking.
You're correct, but be careful here. Almost all 'Traditional' products are not scale-sized, however some of them are; like F3's for instance, and there are others. We're told often that these few measure correctly to scale but are labeled 'Traditional', not because of size or proportions but because of lack of detail.
