stock car capacity

The K7A is a 40’ car.  I put an intermountain ATSF body on the BLI frame and sound system to create a sound car that looks like ATSF. Because of the way it is constructed, I did not think it reasonable to move the system to the Intermountain undercarriage. The bolster locations are off, but 99% of folks would not know the difference.

"Not to open a can of worms, but could one put a sound decoder in a freight car?"

 

Sure.  In fact, Broadway Limited will be happy to sell you mooing and oinking PRR Class K7A stock cars in HO scale.
