Rusty, if you look at the actual car it was pretty standard. Modeling the the roof of the car and taking passengers out of the windows would have been enough.
I have taken a look. Outside of the obvious roof difference, there's no vestibule on the No. 2 end, there's a service door for the galley and the window arrangement is completely different from the Lionel/Flyer observation.

Now, that said, I actually considered throwing the inaccuracies to the wind, ordering the Ferd and scalifying it with AM trucks. But more than anything else, I decided I didn't need another project.
