Help!!!

I am in the process of building a Sand Bin. More specifically, I am constructing the framework, sand hopper, and associated piping for gravity feed of the sand. What I need to know is the height from the bottom of the loco's drive wheels to the top of the sand dome on a Bachmann 2-8-0 and Bachmann K-27. Need to make sure I get the hopper and piping to a correct height above the loco/ sand dome.

Any help is most certainly appreciated.

Thanks, that helps a great deal. I will get some pic's up of the hopper and fill tube later this week. Dead in my tracks today as I cannot find the flat brass stock desired. Should find it tomorrow. If all goes well, I might even get a coat of primer on too!
