Transformers come in all sizes, as per their load's demand, so this tarp-covered HO-scale one is perfectly acceptable on an S-scale freight car. Shown here on a wooden base on an A.C. Gilbert American Flyer 46-foot flat car (as an aside, Ed added a wooden car deck, applied decals from Greg Komar, and installed scale couplers and wheels, to complete this car).

This HO-scale transformer would have an S-scale footprint of 6'x13', and would be good for a depressed-center flat car load.
