When I was in Basel Switzerland, the older trams used the steering wheel for the braking. Great critter by the way, well worth modelling. On30 would be good and I think someone makes the miniature chains and gears.

While it is hard to say, that looks like a Ford Model A four-door sedan. Many of the automobiles of the late 1920s and '30s resemble each other...much like these days. If (and I say 'if') it is a Model A it would be equipped with rod accentuated brakes (which we used to call "push and pray").

On another note, a group of us used to take the tires off the rims of Willeys CJ2A and CJ3A Jeeps. With the addition of a spacer (on each wheel) one could ride 'down the rails' with ease. Unfortunately the old siding we used to 'play on' has long been torn up for scrap.

I believe Ford USa did not have hydraulic brakes until after 1937 -

a friend's dad had a stock '37, and when we suggested puting some

flathead speed equipment we found cheap on the car, his dad said the brakes

would be too weak, and he wanted to keep them stock.
