(dang I've had to come back and fix a bunch of typso)
The Big Hauler line is closer to 1:22 instead of 1:20.
For example, door on Big Hauler passenger car is 3 and 3/8 (3.375) inches, 85mm tall.
In 1:20 scale that would be 5ft 7.5inches tall.
In 1:22 6ft 2.25 inches.

Hartland can be considered 1:22 or 1:24, and a little flexible. While I don't have their 0-4-0 or Dunkirk locomotives I do have their 4-4-0, 2-4-4 Forney, and a number of Mack/Sparky 4 wheel gas and electric locos. Plus a number of cars, the minis in particular.
Sturdy, reliable, no frills - if it isn't needed, it's not there to get broken.

Motors are sealed inside the structure with no ventilation (read water access) and HLW recommends pure filtered DC to prevent motor heating.

Here's the innards of their Mack/Sparky drive block, brutally simple, and sturdy.
