I replaced the Broadway couplers with Kadee 153 couplers in their own

I used some conventional 58s with the spring plate, and I used the old
style box with the "ears". Strangely enough this car has slots in the sill
for the Kadee ears. The height is almost perfect... maybe .010 or less too
low. The truck mount precludes adding any kind of shim there unfortunately.
