Here are a few photos of a Gauge 1 Adler loco in the workshop for some minor repairs, it's my next favourite loco after the Hibernia, and maybe a few others from the Dublin & Kingstown Railway era!

It's a lovely model by Marklin and has some beautiful detailing-

and working valve gear.

Lovely looking model and the valve gear looks great.  Flange depth on wheels is rather deep though.

How is it driven - I don't see any gears on the loco.  Is it tender driven, or by chance is it driven through the valve gear?

Tender-driven - about three quarters of the way down this manual - https://static.maerklin.de/damcontent/78/32/783280fd5e78425fc32fdc46a7cc7d9f1434541876.pdf

The tender weighs a tonne also, I suppose making up for such a small loco so that it can pull something- my Gauge O Hibernia model is about the same size physical and it was a little loco.

Yes the splashes would be a problem but I'd be more worried of being knocked back by those driver levers- they would swing back and forward alternatively which were used by the driver to adjust the valve timing.
