Re: NP Stock Cars represented by Central Valley kit

My understanding is the CV car is 1’ too wide, designed this way to accommodate the too wide trucks and have the car look right with proper overhang sitting on HO trucks. To narrow the car requires removing a section from both the roof and the floor, and using the new ends. It is not noticeable in a passing train when viewing from the side. Looking down from the top in a string of correct width cars you can see the excess width. And it is also noticeable if you built close clearance structures along your tracks or sidings, ie stockpens.
