Not liking the too short cylindrical stacks for my Santa Fe & LAJ ALCO S-2/S-4-4 models by Atlas & Bachmann, had David Cutting of Cutting Edge Scale Models do the stacks thru Shapeways. The Santa Fe ones are rectangular & not cylindrical. The LAJ stacks are cylindrical but taller. Attached links to Google's Picasa images of Santa Fe & LAJ stacks on Bachmann S-2 models. If you can't see them Google/Picasa are free but email me at my addy below & will send them to you . 
Anyone know if these 2 types were used by any other RRs?
If you would like to get any of these stacks, email me at lajrmdlr AT gmail.com. There's 16 stacks per sprue. All my ATSF & LAJ modeler friends "gobbled up" my first batches but will be getting 2 more sprues of each type by 6/11/14. They will be soaked in Bestine 24 hours so they so they turn white & will take paint.

UP did similar mods to their S-2/4 and RS/RSC-2. However, they were all homebrew with no two alike, resembling your ATSF stacks in general function only.

Found a bunch of pix of UP S-2 & S-4 ALCOs on Fallen Flags. Most of them had the tall stacks like LAJ's but there looked to have a band around a joint where an extension was attached. Wouldn't be too hard to wrap a thin whatever around the LAJ stack. Maybe a decal strip would work OK for that.

Learning that my Dropbox links weren't "publicly viewable", did that by clicking on the "Share link" icon. Also have learned that UP & WP didn't use the stock ALCO stacks so now have pix of those locos plus ATSF & LAJ ALCOs in one Dropbox folder:

Please let me know if these Dropbox links here work now.
