And in case someone missed it, Piko has also published a distinct US version of their 2017 new items brochure and their 2017 catalog which are different from the European ones:

The ex MDC line of freight cars (Boxcar, reefer 2 bay hopper in offset and outside ribbed, and ore hopper)are very close to 1/32 scale, this was announced years ago in the press by Gary Raymond. However you must know that the box car is about one inch too short which is a problem, which I wish PIKO would fix, it is probably not a big deal to modify the molds. The reefer is about one inch too short and is too high,it is boxcar height. (Reefers were designed to return to California with the ice hatch open to dry out the ice bunkers and insides, so the bodies were lower to alow that). However they are very useful in particular to live steam modelers or modelers who run at other pikes than their own, because they are robust and not too detailed, I won't bring my Accucraft cars to exhibitions any more, although they are beautiful but too fragile. Once equiped with kadees and scale wheelsets they make fine cars.
