Yes, that’s back to those early Hornby abominations.I already mentioned the rubber scale used by LGB to get an impression of the real thing, and also you might note the shortage of windows in some of their passenger cars - in particular, their version of the White Pass cars. If you take a look at the real white Pass car - View attachment 261363

The car you've showed us IS really long in reality, which is why it's more likely to be a 3ft NG prototype. Hobbycraft is to this kind of modelling as TK MAXX is to haute couture - you need a proper MODEL shop for wood. I'm lucky here near Huntingdon, where we have one of the UK's foremost flying model aircraft makers. THAT's what you need - a model airplane store.
I have to say, with regret, that so far no-one seems to have actually answered my original maths question...
