PC: Re: Re: HO passenger modeling & Bob Ried

The IHC adapter works well on the IHC/Rivarossi cars, but not on con cor for
those I make up a pad of kadee shims to .085 thickness and file the edges a
bit rounded off.  this is for center mount IHC metal trucks.  I dont know of
any off center trucks other than the ones that come with the cars.
