Nose Lift Rings for N Scale PRR E8?

Does anyone make em? As shown here: http://www.rr-fallenflags.org/prr/prr5884s.jpg

I know I can whip some up from styrene, but I'm wondering if anyone offered these as a detail part.

I have a Kato Broadway Limited, but the details on the E8 are coming up kind of short. I plan on picking up the Gold Medal Models PRR antenna set as well.

Thanks!

Mark

I have that part designed, along with some number boards, maybe to offer a kit with some other details.

Another fellow asked for them some time ago, and we have yet to complete the kit, plus SW has introduced more stringent guidelines, so I have to take a longer look.

Maybe your interest will drive completion. Anyone else interested?

Mark,

Yes, these have been offered before @Lemosteam did these as 3D prints.  I don't remember who made them.  I have some on my workbench somewhere.

John,

I'd be interested in these and the number boards if you were to offer them for sale.

Regards,
Scott

I'd be interested.  They ended up on a lot of Amtrak E units too, and some F units.

I seem to recall that Miniatures by Eric offered something like this at one time, but I'm not at all certain.

I'm sorry Dave, I'm afraid I can't do that.

I seem to recall that sunrise made these too... Not that that's all that helpful.

I think J-n-J used to make them.  I know they’re kaput.  I’m sure I’ve got some.

These might also work for the Rapido Comet MBTA cars.
