I'm in need of some measurements and photos of any of the above listed manufacturers for a project. Is like to know the driver diameters and driver wheelbase length for a project. Also I'd love it if someone could post a picture or two of said loco next to some micro trains cars or even a kato mikado for size comparison. Thanks in advance!

Too bad that ebit (from the A-board) is not a member here. He would be able to thoroughly answer this type of question.

Highly doubt I could find it all  :scared:

Now I'm thinking mine is a Tomix (blue box), the motor was in the tender.

Just found the empty case, Tomix 2050.

Could you measure a driver for me?  It should be a 51" driver but I'm concerned it might not be in 1:160.

And I just remembered... I used the drivers on this 0-6-0:
https://picasaweb.google.com/ErieChris333/ErieRailroadB5060NScale#5199401918365377906

And I know where it is  ;)

The drivers are .330" or 52.8"

This image prepared to determine the suitability of the Micro-Ace 2-8-0 mechanism for a model of Pacific Great Eastern's light Mikados, 57 - 59, might be of use to you.

Well that helped a lot pge!
I need a 57" driver BUT the driver wheelbase of 5'4" is spot on! I think I can fudge the 5" difference in driver diameter so I'll have to go ahead and grab one! Looks like I should have my 2-8-2s and 2-8-0s going now.
Thanks again everyone!
