I like butter dish milk cars and have several prewar American Flyer ones.
It's time to have a scale sized, scale looking one on my roster, but the brass ones are a bit too pricey for me.
My plan is to take two of the Lionel O-27 cars and cut/splice them to scale length and mount that on a scale flat car.
Herein lies the question: How long is the flat car? 40 feet? 50 feet? Something in between?
Please let me know.
