I recently bought an MTH flat car w/40ft trailer in British Columbia Railway livery (20-95119). Both the MTH website and the dealer's site listed both 2-rail convertable and Kadee compatible mounting pads as features of this car. It seems to take the 2-rail truck conversion as expected but the Kadee compatible mounting pads are completely missing as shown in the picture below.
The car does seem quite a lot lower on 2-rail trucks and I was wondering if anyone here had done this conversion before and could advise me on how best to get the coupler height right. Should I build up a pad out of plastic sheet and attach it to the metal plate with CA glue or do I need to carve the sill away to make the coupler higher?
Any advice gratefully received. Thanks.
