There would then only be a very simple wagon selection, like:
passenger car (+ DR Rekos)
baggage car (+ Reko)
in addition to a "Rollbock" and/or "Rollwagen", but that would be a bit complicated.

I think I'll work on this after Epoch 1 core standard gauge is finished, since nobody has done it, nobody else is likely to do it, it won't take much time and I'm just in the mood. I could also imagine an eventual extension to "Lokalbahnen" - similar speed, power and use.

- development practically stops in the 1950s
- missing concept: massive curve speed limits on standard gauge rails
- missing concept: lower space requirement
- missing concept: modern hybrid trams
- missing concept: shunting/"Rollbock" feeder system
(list probably incomplete)

1 is not a problem, just the way things are - there's still 70 years before and a few vehicles after that. The thing to do will be either to standard-gauge lines or use trucks, just like in the Canadian set after ~1980. 2 can't really be used sensibly because extremely long curves are very impractical (until proved otherwise of course). The advantage of 3 can be simulated more or less by (much?) lower costs. 4 isn't used all that much. 5 is really a disadvantage of the system and is present everywhere in OpenTTD.
Using trams additionally changes the system too much from real trains.

Exhibit A, just because, and I'm redoing the wagon list (http://www.saechsische-schmalspurfahrzeuge.de/):
Two passenger cars, one short (early), one long. The long one would then have two or three generations, of which the newer two would be modernized. Same for mail/baggage cars.
Freight cars would be simplified further to only open and closed wagons, each in two- and four-axle versions, for the basic part (this might not look so nice).

I've taken the Bavarian narrow gauge engines out of core, since their significance was practically zero
not sure if that makes a lot of sense... currently, you can disable the narrow gauge engines by not using a narrow gauge rail set. so i don't see a lot of harm in offering them anyway, since they are providing a neat set of basic engines.
put the GtL 4/4
i originally left that one out, because it overlaps quite heavily with the R 4/4
and the PtL 2/2 into the mix.
i'm indifferent to that one... might turn out to be a pretty useless engine, or provide some good niche use...
