I used the Westerfield Wine lock castings on the Southern ARA 70 ton 3 bay hoppers and they are very nice.

Hello Al & All:  The Wine lock dies were sent to me by Grandt Line before hey shut down.  We also received a good supply of Wine Locks (#1171 ) that should hold us until we get someone else to make them.

Thank you,

I would go with the Westerfield. They are both made for the H21 and the Westerfields are finer detailed. The Bowser part includes the side of the door as well as the latch.
