Stuart-Turner has always had similar brass oil cups for sale in several sizes. If I remember correctly they use ME threads. Do a Google and find the new owners, the foundry that has made the castings for years.
We had ground squirrels and rats eating our aluminum rail at Los Angeles Live Steamers in Griffith Park, Los Angeles. When we installed replacement steel rails for the 7 1/2" gage track that ended the problem there. However, we still have aluminum on the 4 3/4" and 3 1/2" gages. From time to time we...

He tried to get me to learn some of his knowledge but I wasn't interested at the time. He was painting RR cars and structures with his dad in the pre WWI era...

The folks that do restorations on the Virginia & Truckee rolling stock have matched the industrial archyology (spelling?) and come up with what are very close matches to the original paints. The last remaining car to have been at Promontory had at one time a very r...
I know of at least two 2-4-4-2s in 1.5" scale were built. Also there was a lady engineer in So. Cal. that started one using a pair of RRSC 0-4-0 chassis as a base. I don't know what happened to any of these engines.
