Handrail replacements
Author: NKPSOUTHERN

Greetings all.

After a VERY long time of not building anything I decided to chop some Athearn Bluebox gp 50's into high hoods.  My question is which handrail stanchions are you all using for replacements since it looks like Smokey Valley is out of business??

KV models makes very detailed EMD style stanchions (KVmodels.com). Proto Power West - A Line sells stanchions that mimic the Athearn BB style - less detailed but very sturdy (ppw-aline.com).

Precision Scale has a couple sets of brass stanchions available. 2740 is the old PIA SD40-2 kit which is great. I can’t remember the part numbers for their other stanchions at the moment.
