Re: Rapido NP boxcar, K brake question

Some of my 4 Rapido NP 10000-13999 series cars looked like they were riding a bit high, but then I carefully seated the trucks on their body-mounted 'king pins' and they looked a lot better.  I checked the Jan 1952 ORER, and the height to the top of the running board is 13'-8"; my cars measure 14'-0", about 4" taller.  Modifying the king pins does not look like it would be easy, so I can probably live with that for a while.
