The ones from the show last year work great but I did replace the couplers with Kadee 789 since i run some 10" curves. I also removed the brake shoes as they create some drag. I love the cars I wish the Rock Island car was the gray with black lettering.

Since I model primarily the Rock Island I could use several of these hoppers.

Nice cars and I would recomend them.

I am not a big fan of the bankruptcy blue.....I did buy several of the Frisco show cars last year and have repainted to Rock Island gray cars with black lettering.

I will wait for the grey undec car for some more Rock Island hoppers. They had a boat load of these covered hoppers.
