Re: Steam Fittings for Tank Car Heads

Some nominees (I have not seen any of these; the list comes from looking through the PSC catalog):

There are various clean-out/wash-out plugs: GH-48274, GH-48213, look like good nominees, but I'd check them all if I could (there's a whole page of them in the PSC steam locomotive catalog)

Also: Pipe flanges, such as GH-48100,  there are others as well - this is the smallest. Again, there's a whole page of them in the catalog

More off the wall items:

PSHO-32135 Starter control Franklin booster engine (It has a flange that might be good if cut off)
HO-3535 Throttle control for booster engine (ditto)

HO-31837 Rear inspection plates, Vanderbilt tender

Rich,
 
The special thing I am looking for is the round riveted plate around the fitting, plus, it would be nice to have just the round riveted plate without a fitting, which you can also find on cars where the interior coils have be inserted.
 
Thanks,
Steve Hile

Precision has a bunch of pipes and fittings that might work?
