People tend to design their own trains in 6-, 7- and 8-stud width size. They look good in city layouts - not too big and do not cause any serious troubles operating even on LEGO tracks. And somewhat to scale. I've made 48 cm (1.5748 feet) long 8-stud wide scale model of a train loco myself. It could operate on standard LEGO train tracks.
Measure the exact center-to-center distance between the rollers, then position the loco at the exact spot that it loses power. Make marks on the center rail and use a ruler to see if there's a relationship between the marks and the roller dimension.
