And even more important, wire size of only a bit over 0.001” diameter (1/8” = 0.125”, and 0.125 /87= 0.0014”). Not at all practical.

In her presentation, Kristen said the mesh on the car at St Louis measured: 
1/8” woven wire, 1.5”x1.5” vertical diamond pattern
In HO that calls for a  0.0172 x 0.0172 mesh

Where did you she her presentation?  I'm one of those whom work kept me from attending.  

The screen I measured on the existent poultry car in StL, IIRC, is a rather simple welded wire diamond mesh pattern of ~ 1.1" x 1.1" square.
