I'm thinking as a first step towards 'getting back into it' I'll make a passenger car. Since there are no pictures of the passenger equipment on my 60cm prototype, I'm free to do what I like.

So, I'm looking for 'cute' little passenger cars to model.

One reason for 'cute' is that probably means 'short', and that means short radius. Since these cars will probably be the limiting factor in what radius I can use on the layout, anything I can do to make them turn tighter means more RR for Annie.
