Um, Pierre DOES make these 😉 I have used them on several recent builds including the 2020 SnT Bx-34. The set also includes brake step brackets and his really neat supports for the ends of the running boards as well

Thanks to all for the photos.
Good point about the running board brackets.
Of course I was focused on the somewhat unusual lateral support brackets. I think I might have to go with shim brass strips to get them to look right and have some structural strength.

That is an excellent photo John. It highlights the 3-piece running board supports found on so many boxcars. Here in 2020 we are still using big square blobs on our models for supports. I wish I had the metal-etch chops that Pierre Oliver has.
