Reply to "K-Line RPO Interior Upgrade"

K-Line made both this 15" car and a 21" RPO. They differ only in length. Height and width are the same. Same with their 18" cars but no RPOs in 18".

I'd be very interested in that 21" RPO if only just to see how it was made. I think that generally K-Line (and Lionel) did not alter the lengths of the metal frames on their aluminum 21" cars - they used the same length frames as for 18" cars and the extra body length over the frame was compensated for by lengthening the plastic vestibule/end cap assemblies at each end.

Anyway a 21" RPO would provide lots of room for interior details. I have an 18" aluminum Lionel Shasta Daylight RPO car that is very nicely detailed inside, including mail sacks. It's an all plastic interior of course but the attention to detail it represents is not duplicated in any of Lionel's current offerings.
