    Gary, I can't answer your question about the produce bags, but what I have found to be very dependable over years of use is ordinary sandwich bags (the kind where you tuck in the flap to close). These protect a model from abrasion on protruding parts like grab irons, and do not seem to interact with the model surface. 


     An HO scale car of 40-ft. or less fits nicely. Of course it takes two of them for 50-ft. cars . . .
