Caboose Marker Lights source?

Bryte Rails seems to have closed up shop, and cannot seem to access Railroad Supply Corporation's website. Also Franklin Automatic's website is now inaccessible. Anyone have any other sources for Marker lights?

Wanted 1/4" brass angle 36" length

This might not be the right place to ask this, but does anyone know of a source for brass angle 1/4" x 1/4" x 36"L? I used to get it from Special Shapes but their website has closed down, and I assume they have, too.

Air Reservoir

Re: Allen mogul equalized pilot truck
