Yikes! If the physics scaled linearly you'd be in trouble. To run your model train, you'd have to use ~1/87th of the power needed to drive an actual train! From a back of the envelope calculation (~1000 horsepower full sized train, 1/100th scale locomotive, and google conversion from hp to watts) you'd be running at ~7500 watts!
