Wondering why you didn't use the KATO smooth-side baggage-RPO (of their first run of passenger cars), since it has the exact window and door arrangement of the VIA car. Not surprising because KATO based the car on the UP design.

I saw the Kato car and did try to find one but all of the ones I found were more expensive than i wanted to pay. I got this car for very little, but hind sight being what it is, I do wish I had started with the Kato.
