Hm-m. That photo of the track is interesting. Looks like the track gauge is a little tighter than standard O scale which, as noted, is 1 1/4". IIRC, back in the time period when this model was made there were a few modelers who chose to model the correct track gauge (about 1 5/32") and a couple of manufactures would supply locos to that gauge. OTOH, there were also some modelers who chose to build their models to 17/64" scale, a bit larger than O scale but that made the standard O scale track gauge more correct. Today we have the Proto48 (or P48) modelers who use the correct O scale track gauge but also use prototypically correct wheel and track standards. Think using HO scale wheels in O scale for comparison.

I admire your tenacity. I don't think I would have the patience.
