Very interesting that the SVX cars appear to have one compartment twice as big as the other. Now *that* would be an unusual model.

       There were a very few cars with one big and one small compartment, evidently built that way with equal-size domes. There were also cars with a big center dome and a small side dome, evidently conversions from single-compartment cars. Either could be readily kitbashed from the new Tangent car, either in kit form or in the primer-painted but unlettered version, and even in the lettered car--the location of lettering would make it easy to preserve, but then the car number and some other data would need replacing.
