    I pretty much redid every part as you can see by the photos. More latter. 19234959934_ae83b06657_o~2.jpg 20226584758_ac777a7e38_o~2.jpg 20937560100_cf8a5c39fd_o.jpg

    I don’t think I’ve ever gotten a good look at the Bachmann cylindrical hopper. I owned one for about a week when I first got into the hobby, but returned it to the hobby shop for some reason. Mine was the orange Santa Fe version, but I’m not even sure of the real prototype for the car.
