I have fitted Digitrax controllers to small engines with no problem. I believe some Zen models are also very small.
Many times the wrong train took me to the right place.

You could try TCS M1 decoders which were designed for N gauge or the Z series which were designed for Z gauge.

What make of Dean Goods is it - googling the make/ model plus DCC conversion usually throws up an article or two.

As BromMods suggested a TCS M1 https://uk.tcsdcc.com/m1/ will do the trick but it has to located in the loco as shown here https://tcsdcc.com/installation/ho-scale/1313
