Default LGB's modern grain hopper car

Where does this car fall in scale terms. I know LGB used their rubber ruler till it wore out. I have an AML Chessie grain hopper and its huge when compared to my smaller scale Lionel GP20's. Is the LGB one smaller, I wanna say it was more to LGB's scale than 1:29th like the AML and USA hoppers. Want to get some grain hoppers for my GP20's to pull, need MTH to do some in 1:32nd scale. Mike

Default LGB Grain Hopper Car Scale

Having dealt with the LGB grain hopper car with respect installing body mount Kadee centerset couplers , based on the car's height, it is 1/29 scale.

Your "Problem" is that the Lionel locomotive is 1:32 scale, so the cars look too large when compared to it. The Mikes Train House, LS equipment is 1:32 scale, and may look better with it.
