|" Gigi Buffon roughly 52mm tall "
Gigi Buffon is actually 54.428571mm tall !
" So my trains are at 4.36 feet wide. This is now a bit small "
Not really ...
... The Gilpin Tram had flat-cars about this width & so did the Maine S.R.& R.L. ...
... also the Gilpin Tram ore-cars are about that width or a tad wider as well ...
... a 'Tri-ang' HO ore-car is a DEAD RINGER for a 1:35n2 Gilpin ore-car ( pretty much ) ...
... that HO ore-car you Posted a photo of a while back, looked pretty useable/moddable as well.
It might be that jumping to 1:35 will be TOO BIG a leap in scale, if you just want a figure to suit your loco ...
... it might be that a 1:48/On30 figure at 1 1/2" high, would stand well next to your loco.
Decisions ... decisions ... Mmm ...
Oh well ... Once you are sorted on scale etc. ...
... then all that wondering & guess-work etc. is behind you & it's FULL THROTTLE all ahead ...
