Richard and MacG

Thanks for the info.... :thumbup: We'll try these methods out. Usually, I remove the trucks to give me a little more room to work with, I never thought the entire piece would come out as an assembly!!

On the tank cars the coupler box pushes out. MT 1023 fits in the coupler holder bracket. The box fits loosely so you need a shortened 00-90 screw to hold it in place. The coupler is a bit high.
I
On the hopper cars the coupler box also pushes out. It is held in place by a pair of nubs on the top of the coupler so it is a bit harder to remove. On the bottom of the bracket there is a protrusion that needs to be removed before a MT 1015/1016 will fit. With the protrusion filed off, the MT coupler box will be a tight jam fit.
The 1015 will give you close coupling. The 1016 will give you more separation between the cars.
Either coupler will be at the right height.

Another coupler day. Changed all the couplers on my Zeuke cars.
The tank cars got 1023s with a screw holding them in.
The hopper cars got 1015 couplers. They are a tight jam fit.
All of the hopper cars got a load of small lead shot glued into to each of the six hoppers. I used canopy glue. It should be dry in a day or two.

Hi guys,

Some new CP hoppers are limited available in a mat finish, car # 358728, 359358 and 359632. See the pictures. Car ends are also printed.

I understand that several people have problems with the couplers from MTB. If so report it and I will replace them.

Ciao,
Rob

Will the Canadian Pacific “multi-mark” cars be the same price as the other hopper cars?

I'd say no. Check his online store. Including VAT they cost 9 Euro more.

Understood, I should have checked the store before asking.

No, it is always good to ask.

This piece of artwork is the result of the combined knowledge of Richard Brennan and Jan Prichystal. It was for MTB impossible to print. The PacMan logo is not an easy job. The ACI plates, which are different per car, are an impossible job for MTB. And of course you know that the long sides are different from each other. JP finished the printing with a fine mat coating.

Yes this piece of artwork cost a bit more. It will be 49€ with VAT, inclusive couplers. For the US or Canada that would be 40,50€ without VAT.
But because some of you will install your own couplers, without couplers in inclusive VAT it would be 48€, exclusive VAT, 39,67€.

Now waiting for the layout of the last set of hoppers, with an even more colourfull scheme. And after the last red hopper, we will try something new. But like always it needs time and money. In other words buy these hoppers!

Ciao,
Rob
