DrewI saw your post and just did a Rail Line car. This is the ticket!!! I think it may be even easier than what you did. I did step 1 and and only part of step 2. At step 2 I cut the side walls off of the Kadee box flush with the inside faces of the walls. I left the rear wall on. This wall is the same height as the pivot post. Now the new coupler box floor will rest on 2 places instead of just 1. The new floor width is exactly the same width as the Rail Line boxes inside width and no measuring was needed! Pretty nice. Then I followed your steps 3 and 4. I did the same procedure on a Blackstone boxcar. All that I needed to do was to remove the original pivot post on both cars. I kind of mentioned that last week when these first showed up in the Gazette add. And then promptly forgot about it. Good On You Brother! Nicely done!!!
Now apply one of these to a steam loco pilot.
