Who sells N Scale signal bridges?

I am in the market for some 2 track and 3-4 track signal bridges.  While I would have preferred a PRR prototype, at this point any 2-legged signal bridge would be satisfactory.

- Traincat has one but not taking orders.
- Alkem had them (I had purchased one) but no longer shows anything but a Cantilevered model
- NJ International had these in their catalog for many years, but now I am told the 3-4 track models are unavailable. 

Are there any other manufacturers?

There is also the former N Scale of Nevada one offered by Wiseman:

I believe John's model is derived from an SP prototype

The N scale of Nevada one was specifically engineered for NTRAK three-track spacing, so it may be wide enough for four regular tracks on prototypical centers.  Last time I saw John Coots before he passed, he pointed out piles and piles of them he'd made but not sold that he had in inventory.

There may be a couple dealers that have some Traincat stuff left, maybe somebody knows.  I know I saw one dealer with them in Bedford last year.   I hope things get better for Bob, I'm willing to demolish a non-load bearing wall in my basement to make room for that Canyon Diablo bridge he'd started on.

PRR stuff is pretty distinctive.  I'm assuming this is what you 'really' want though:  http://www.traincat2.com/d_prr24.htm

Another option (at least for the two track versions):

You can still get the Alkem PRR 4 track here:

I have a few of the Alkem 4-track signal bridges in various states of assembly.   
If you want 'em, PM me.  I'll make you are great deal.
