Was wondering. Anyone know if you can fit 4 of the Menards cars, pickups, or panel wagons on an old autoloader car?

If no one's tried it, can someone that has one post the inside width and length of the carrier part?

The auto loader would have to be 1:48 scale to accomodate the same scaled Menards cars, I think. But even then plastic moldings might be too thick or have internal obstructions that would block car entries.

As I suspected, the Lionel autoloader super structure limits what can fit on the lower level. The recently released Plymouth Fury's fit on the lower level with room to spare but the Dodge pick-up and Dodge Power wagon will not fit on the lower level, cabs are to high. The 2 trucks are OK on the upper level.
