My personal thoughts:
1) 13” or 16.5” basically able to run O31 radius curves
2) Personally I prefer streamlined cars, but Madison heavyweights are also a big part of my collection
3) individual cars with empty but “detailed” interiors, ~$40; If they had actual people figures and detailed interiors, ~$60. if just frosted “glass” with or without silhouettes, ~$25.
i think either the Lionel baby Madison or rail king passenger cars are good ideas for size and such. Again, just my personal opinion on what I like.
Stay with the low cost high quality market niche you have so beautifully established. I would much rather my grandson have Menards 13 or 16 in passenger cars than none at all..
Not everyone has a lot of storage space or budget.
