Re: Modeling a Lever Hand Brake

This appears to be a model 5790-A pump-action hand brake with a stirrup-grip handle from the Universal Railway Devices Company. It was also available with a straight handle.

Sunshine offered this lever hand brake in their Greenville gondola kits, and probably with other kits too.
And Proto 2000 offered a version with their Greenville gondolas.

Can anyone point me to an HO scale detail part to comes close to this brake lever type?  This is from a B&O O-48 Gondola that started life on the BR&P. Also not sure about the true name of this type of handle for the brake mechnanism. Thank you.
