i am thinking of purchasing some silo cars to intergrate on a NA setup. as any NA cylindrical hoppers are probaly a long way off, what is the feasibility of americanising the european style silo cars.

replacing the trucks, removing the buffers and painting in a US scheme would be a start .

it's quite likely no one would notice.

just had an amusing story on one of the aussie forums about a driver who was adamant he'd worked on 'one of these locos just the other day' ... he was pointing at a model railway loco - a Lima FP45 painted in aussie colours.

needless to say no such loco has ever existed in australia.
