Does anyone still make n-scale chain in the 60-70 link-per-inch size?  I checked the archives and found a reference but it was from 2008.

Doug,

I sell chain here in Australia but in all reality the smallest chain I have been able to get lately blackened from China is 48 links per inch.  I sell it to N Scalers over here.

while not ideal, there are a number of 1/700 and 1/350 ship brass etch detail companies out there like Gold Metal that have etched chain.  That might work for you?
