    Guess I need to buy some short-extension body mount couplers, these are the medium one's I bought for mounting on the 60' Bachmann coaches... so this is just an experiment. once I finish the other end and get the couplers tightened on I can see what happens on my curves, which are about 15" radius +/- 1" (used flex track)

    The list of rolling stock projects keeps getting longer, I found at least 5 more cars that I want to work on. One of them just needs decal renumbering and weathering:
