Pearse 0-6-0T "Wye" on eBay from Trainz. (Didn't seem to fit the eBay auction forum.)
Pearse Wye Green Live Steam Locomotive #358 | eBay

The frame looks very similar to my Merlin Maestro, so I wonder if the basics came from Beck? I also saw a video of one called Jessica, so I have no idea what the actual product was called.

Anyone know anything about these models?

I know nothing...
But an observation : That seems to be one heck of an overhang of loco behind the third axle?

I think it's a Pearse Ulysses.

Yes, it does have an overhang - at the front too.

Look up the 16mm Association website (UK site), they have a section devoted to historical locos and manufacturers

I've been talking to Ian Pearse about this model. The vendor's company is well-known in the US for asking crazy money for models, especially H0 scale. He is asking almost £1800 for an H0 scale USRA tank loco with Worth Valley Railway paint. I've emailed him about it and so far just been told that it is H0 scale. Who has heard of Eisenbahn Canada? Not, I, Sirrah.

Back to the steamie - it is a Pearse Ulysses with 'Wye' nameplates on it, and the Pearse build plates, for some reason, removed from its usual location epoxy-glued between the frames behind the third axle, to a place on the side tanks. I wonder where they got the second one from? The vendor clearly knows SFA about it, and does not deserve his 99.8% great vendor status.

My recommendation is to stay way in droves.
