The Roy Wood locos are great and I'd recommend them over a Mamods any day. If your budget can stretch far enough I couldn't recommend the Roundhouse Millie enough if I tried, had one since release around 2000 and its still running fantastically!
My first loco was a meths fired IP Engineering Jane...and that was great fun...although I melted many, many sleepers

You, me, and however many others that suffer this indignity!
Chris Stockdale wrote:Gauge decision: probably at least 80% of 16mm scale bods play on 32mm rather than 45, but naturally all G scalers are 45. As commented, any Regner and many (but not all) Roundhouse locos are gauge adjustable. Roy's VB loco is not gauge adjustable.
Shunting: something slow and geared like a Regner is fine for shunting without RC (I used my Vincent first time out of the box on Si Harris's (Modelearth's) 10' long exhibition layout without difficulty).
Something like a Regner Vincent or Willi is easily adaptable to give a nice 7/8ths or 1/12 scale look
