Actually, I was interested in their height compared to conventional loco's. I think they're too large for post war Lionel die cast steamers. But I have little to go on ...
Here is the refurbished Northern Pacific version with a remake of the Postwar 2026 type pacific steamer. They look undersized to me.

To my eyes they look like the perfect size passenger cars for that engine.

Both sets of passenger cars look great. You did an outstanding job on them, Bill.

Great job on the 2600's. I especially like the black-and-white color theme. Simple, but it really "pops" so nicely, with the dark-red window trim. Wonderful!

Yep, the SP&S white & black did turn out very nice. Certainly a fantasy color combo but it stands out on the layout.

Refurbishing and repaints are one of the fun aspects of the O Gauge hobby. Buy a $10 junker and have some fun with it turning it into a jewel.

Bill,

I've done a lot of tinplate restoration work ... some purist, but many my own choice of colors. That said, I've never thought of a white theme, with black trim, etc. Your cars look so nice in white, that I think you've inspired me!

Hmmm ...
