They are so many different styles and you have first to figure out if a current model has your style you need.
Kato, Bachmann, Minitrix and other European manufactures have electro loco models. And all of them offer replacements for those and it is just a matter to find a dealer that would order it for you.

Are they weathered? Scratchbuilt ..

Iain, you might see if any stores have this in stock:

Walthers is out. N-Cat pantograph kits are unavailable right now, too. Search eBay, that's where I got a pair of absolutely beautiful Fulgurex pans for $6.50 several years ago.  8)

John, the guy does want to scratchbuild a juice jack evidently.  :P

The ones I want are similar to the ones on the GG1s.  Thanks for the help.  I tried Kato, couldn't find anything.  It would end up costing more for shipping to get something from overseas than the actual pantographs, I think.

Ian do you still need those pantographs?..... Also do you want dummys or live pants?  that makes a difference in price as well.  Kato Japan makes some of the dummy styles that match the GG-1s, if you want live ones i'll check to see if i still have any as i brought a whole mess of them for various projects.

I really don't care about live or dummy.

I have put the whole project in a box for the moment from lack of pans and money to buy the locomotive that will donate the mechanism.
