Do real small guage models of the Talyllyn railway engines exist? Or are they community created?

Only kits exist, and the only compatible chassis for them are unreliable.

Depends on the chassis you stick under the kits to be honest (avoid the Ibertren and Early Bachmann 0-4-0s), although there are people out there who will happily build you bespoke locomotives in the scale.

Have a couple Big Haulers and the 4-6-0 annie.
A G scale Emily is on my wish list.
She'd probably get reworked  bit to look like something out of 1850s in USA.

And whoever did the calculus to get the drive on the HO one to do both the 8ft driver and the trailing axle is a better man than I!

Emily's coaches were released early, from what I have heard, to go with Bachmann's new Large Scale Lynn Locomotive.

Emily has also not been released, or officially announced, because they have had a few issues with her wheel. At least, this is what I have been told by a friend who is always in contact with the company.

Expect that would be the driving wheel, which would be huge in G.

Edit:
Just went and checked driver diameter on HO Emily (which is getting kitbashed into an On30 thing) and it is roughly 35mm.

So, just for fun, let's play with some number relationships to maybe get a ballpark idea:

For a set scale there will be some relationship between driver diameter and track gauge if both are modeled at same ratio.  

a. HO scale with track gauge of 16.5mm makes for a driver of 35mm
b. G scale, which can be one of several scales, with track gauge of 45mm would make for a driver diameter of maybe ...?
c.
(35mm driver) / (16.5mm track gauge) = (X mm driver) / (45mm track gauge)
2.12121212 ... = (X mm driver) / (45mm track gauge)
winding up with
2.21 x 45 = probably near a 95mm diameter driver
95/25.4 = roughly 3 and 3/4 inch diameter

That driver wheel is probably going to be in the neighborhood of as big around as top of 1 quart, a.k.a. 2 pint, (916ml) can of paint; or a 29oz (822g) can of sliced peaches.

It really was a mistake! I am glad we see eye to eye. In the predictions thread, I do not try to get people angry, or upset, I just think I express my feelings to strongly. Sorry.  Embarrassed Sad
