Looking for some steam detail parts

Hello all,

I'm looking for some steam detail parts and since I'm not really sure whats out there I figured I would poke around here.  Right now the most crucial piece I need is a Worthington SA feed water heater.  Does GHQ make one of these, and is it available?  Pics?  Are there any good steam stanchions out there?  Lagged piping?  Thanks for the help!

You can get the feedwater heater and piping from RLW. No pics though so you have to go through the parts.

No picture (as already stated) but it is a GHQ part:

Not the best pictures, may be able to zoom in.

Thank you Chris!  I've been racking my brain trying to remember the RLW site for the last month! 

Bookmarked!   :facepalm:

Thanks for the help!

This is the type of feedwater heater I need

I've been snooping around the RLW site for a while now, the lack of pics is a little frustrating. All of these parts are for a 3D printing project that I would like to have a reliable source for parts.  I don't want to print handrails so finding a good source for steam stanchions is a must.  I'd also like to find marker lights and headlights. Thanks again for the help!

Gold Medal Models makes a Steam Locomotive Detail Set that includes a lot of stanchions of various lengths.

GHQ/ RLW make both types of feedwater heaters and pumps.
