Agreed. there is only a small bench seat in first class. The table setting is small, and once laid out it takes up all the room. The first class meal is the same as the other meal but includes wine (which your child doesn't need). So if you are going, I would suggest the dining room would be a better option.
The trip itself is interesting for an adult, but for a child it would be boring and uneventful.
If your child is into trains, maybe you can meet the train at Drysdale and look at it when it is at the station, or alternatively look at the children's train option that goes along the same track, and does not include the meal.
