Where to get this part

Who makes the red hose pictured above the coupler on the pilot face in this photo?

It looks like a white metal casting.  If not available anymore, how would you model it?  Maybe solder with styrene bits for the ends?

I though BLMA made those. Check the BLMA site?
Which ever side of the track I am on is the right side.

Atlas has something very close in the MU hose from the 8-40B - it's already red and just needs weathering!  ;D

Check this out:

Only $0.50 per set!!!! :o

Yea, definitely Atlas for this.  In general, their parts store is a great resource.  For example, you can order enough parts for 2 complete undec 48' Pines trailers for $11.25.  The MSRP for a single undec is $10.95.  I'm guessing 'supplies are limited.'

That's the old Sunrise part.  I used those up until a. my stock ran out and b. Atlas released the Dash 8's and subsequent parts.  The Atlas part is thinner and actually looks better if you ask me.  Here's one I just installed on the C30-7.  I use the molded on recepticle as the guide for the drill location.
