That makes sense.

Don't have an On30 layout at home right now, 
but I built new bodies for some Bachmann HO 4-wheel cars in Thomas the Tank Engine range when some came available at close to half price.

Also used some  HO scale 36ft old timer, and Athearn 40ft, car frames. 
Well, dang, don't seem to have ever put any decent images of them up on Flickr.
Had a number on P-bucket until that day when ...

Okay, cars in background here will give the idea,






Another advantage of really short cars is that there is minimal coupler displacement from track centerline on really sharp curves.
