Cool! Looks like an easy conversion from this car: I'll have to keep it in mind when I get to that car :)

That car reminds me a lot of the conversion Norm and I did on the Sandy RIver

If I were to lay down, I would be able to touch both ends of the car.

Interesting trucks too, sort of a hybrid between freight arch bar trucks and standard passenger car trucks...
