Re: Shortening Kadee Running Board
As I detail my KATO covered hopper cars (dead nuts on for MONON) I apply Kadee running boards.
First, I use the 50 ft. size. I slice off the corner platforms with a razor blade and cut the “trunk” of the running board to match what I am removing from the model. I then reinstall the platforms in the proper locations using strip styrene to support them at the proper height.
Why 50 ft. long running boards? Leaves plenty of material for platforms and such. The leftovers also make great locomotive running boards.

Has anyone tried this or have suggestions that would make it easier? Photos? I know canopy glue is a good adhesive for adhering to supports and maybe I could make the joint over one. Thanks for your insights.
