I have been talking to Stephen Fisher over the last week or so. Well I got interested in building something.  I found a scrap of pine lumber and ran it through a table saw and made some strip wood.  Then I knocked together a flat car underframe.  This is what I have so far.  I built this to 9mm scale to the foot.  So it represents 42 inch gauge on O guage track.  The couplers I am using are some of those old Walthers couplers that were made to be compatible with O guage 3 rail lionel type couplers.  These are actually smaller than Lionel and look better in my opinion. They are dummy couplers though so not good for switching.  The RR I am interested in used full size couplers on it's equipment.  That would be Japan and Taiwan. Well here are a couple of pictures.
