Steam Dome Cap Material To Use

What type of steel do I need to use for the steam dome cap? My boiler did not come one and I bought the locomotive from the third owner of this engine. What I have been told is that the boiler was built by Colorado Boiler Company. By the way the locomotive is 2.5 inch scale 2-8-0.

Re: New Supplier of Trucks

JTolan it is for 1 truck only at that price, people have to pay double for a pair of passenger car trucks. I don't know why they don't want to sell them as a pair. Who just wants to buy just 1 passenger car truck???
