I mounted 789 boxes on all my hoppers and tankers. I also removed all the hangy things from the bottom and glued the hatches closed. Its even worse out doors with leaves etc.
789s just redrill new holes

I do 789s because they are straight shank and best side to side motion. they will run on 8ft dia curves. I used to be sold on 830s because of the slack action.
I have photos in my gold file labeled kadees and shows the differences.
789s on gunderson cars also with little cutting. same on all locos, little cutting and longer screws.
I need to head back to work now.
