The Bachmann Lyn is closer to 1:22.5 but with a taller cab.Bachmann claims the Lyn is 1:20.3 scale and the dimensions do match up pretty well with the specs from the L&B Railway webpage.
Do the math...
Prototype Lyn. Beam to beam: 23 ft 9 inch or 285 inches. Lyn | The Lynton & Barnstaple Railway
Bachmann Lyn. Beam to beam: 12.75 inches aprox.
Some measurements of truck lengths, beam to beam mentioned in this thread.
Thomas truck: 220mm
Accucraft L&B truck: 160mm
Hartland truck: 140mm
The Thomas truck is much longer and higher compared to the Accucraft L&B truck even though a smaller scale.
