I guess that I should amend my last statement to include Z scale. Catt, that is amazing. My wife has informed me that I need to get busy with the second level on our layout. She's wanting to run her passenger trains, and wants someplace for them to go.

If it's Jeff Sauer you mean, he's busy downsizing his accumulation over on that famous Internet Auction Site. I've picked up a few cars from him. I think he's doing fine.
Meanwhile, here's an "interchange car" I sent to Catt this week...
This is the first time I've used the Micro-Scale Gothic Lettering for the reporting marks. I'm running out of New York Central roadnames, which is what I prefer (I use the Ws, Ns and Ys), and Micro-Scale changed the decal sheet to have a lot fewer copies of the roadname. So we adapt as necessary...
I got a chance to get up into the model room and train room to do some rearranging. My wife has made it plain that there will be double decks and no duck under, so I'm starting to prepare for that. I removed the closet doors and am getting that area ready for the helix. I've got a couple hundred model cars and trucks that will be moved over to the model room to make room for the second deck.
One of my N scale rolling stock projects is this Bachmann ACF Center-flo.Other than being lettered for my GVR and grafittied it has a PLANO roofwalk (for the ATLAS ACF) currently has MTL trucks and couplers but plans are for BLMA 100 ton trucks and 1023 (#?) body mounted couplers.
I am also planning to lower the brake wheel and mount crossover platforms.
