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.
Wouldn't using the 18" car frame for 21" cars then place the trucks in the wrong location on the car?
