Two more NS hoppers were sacrificed at the altar of the Western Maryland earlier today....


The dismembered corpses are starting to pile up... ;D

It am what it am...  I have a reference somewhere with dimensions... I think I left it a little tall.  They're not glued on, so I can go back and fix them if I missed by a smidge.  I just cut it off at the top of the slope sheet.

edit - I found it... the prototype added 3'0-1/8" over the original hopper... some shots show the brake wheel in the original location, and some show it moved up onto the extension.  I chose the former on mine... it's easier to trim it off the extension than to modify the lower one...
