Detail parts for N coaling towers...

Ladders, platforms and railings are all available in brass, but what about coaling chutes and any other details a concrete tower would need? Hopefully parts in brass but anything will be looked at.

Pictures or documentation would be most helpful.

The chutes & stuff on the HO Walthers Concrete one are desireable. This is pretty much what I'd like

In N, of course. And any kind of medium: plastic, brass, Shapeways, etc. (not wood)

The angle brackets and handwheels on that HO sprue look like parts you could get from Grandt Line in N Scale.

The rest of it looks like pretty flat rectangular shapes that would just be flat sheets and strips of brass.
The spouts would be harder to scratchbuild, so I can see how castings would help there. 

Does it really have to be brass?  The Grandt Line plastic stuff is very finely made.
