QR Steam era models

A few years ago someone had asked this question, and since then it appears that resources have almost dried up.

Are there any manufacturers of QR steam era locomotives?

Failing that, were any ex-BR/GWR/LMS/etc ever exported to Australia and run by QR?

I do realise that because this is more likely to be a niche, prices are bound to be closer to 4 digits for even a early loco.

In addition to the list above, steam era QR rollingstock kits are available from Caintode Flats (Gary Pysden) and are a pinnacle of kit building for QR Modellers (IMHO).  Unfortunately, he does not have a website but some of his stuff can usually be found on the trade stand of Southern Rail Models/ PGC/Black Diamond Models at exhibitions in and around Brisbane.  The next one they will be at is the Gold Coast show on 20/21 July but I am not sure if Caintode Flats stuff will be at this one too.  Details of this show are in another post - https://www.railpage.com.au/f-t11374828.htm

Unless the BR/GWR/LMS etc ran 42" gauge stock, what would have been the value to QR in importing it?

And if they did the models would be the wrong scale anyway.
