Hi Woodie,

My On30 version of the 70 foot McKeen is just over 17 inches. If 3/8" is the same as .375" x (feet?) the 55 foot McKeen would be a little over 20 inches.

The straight sides of the McKeen makes them sort of easy to scratch build. I use wood for the roof on the ones I make.

I know a guy named Jerry Barnes that made at least 2 of the 55 foot McKeen Motor Cars in 1/29" scale. If you can find the August 1997 issue of "Garden Railways" his models are featured in it.
