I replaced the Tichy trucks with sprung Bowser trucks, and it raised the coupler height. I don't know what would have happened if I used the Tichy trucks that came with the kit.
I ended up using Kadee couplers with an overset shank to lower the coupler head to the appropriate height above the tracks.

I picked up one of these kits back in the days when you could go to a train show. After a bit of study, I decided to use it to model a worn UP flat (

Turns out the car is riding very high--the whole body is about 9" high. Has anybody had this problem? The kit is very simple--it doesn't seem possible to screw it up (there aren't even any brake parts included, just the one-piece body, a weight and an underframe).
