Length of heavyweight baggage and passenger cars

The recent announcement by Atlas to release "MTH 18 inch" heavyweight passenger cars and head end cars piqued my interest.  The best measurement of car length may be from end of sill to end of sill as any measurement referencing couplers varies by types of couplers and is useless if drawbars are used.  As far as I know, MTH heavyweight cars measured 17" from end of sill to end of sill, the same as Jerry Williams' cars.  I took these photos this morning
