    Hello all,

    I bought the new Red Ball, Mann's Creek kits recently, and this is the second one that I finished now.

    It's a 15 ton side dump hopper. The kit was indended to be narrow gauge, but I made it standard gauge. Needless to say, the car sits a little higher than it should.

    The cars were in fact being built up to 1942, but what type of trucks should be in them? These are just a Tichy Arch bar trucks.

    Has anyone got the link and pin couplers down pat yet?

    Very nice work!

    I'd like a few of those but it looks like work.

    I had not thought of building narrow gauge kits as standard.:rolleyes: :)
