Does anyone on the list know of the availability of any of the
detail parts in HO scale?

1) Early Equipco brake wheel (the one with holes in the center ring,
not triangular cut-outs)?
This hand brake comes in the InterMountain PFE R-40-10 kit. However, be
wary as I've seen a lot of them with substantial amounts of flashing.
You get a "free" extra hand brake of this type when ordering the ART
cars from Amarillo RR Museum, since these kits also include the correct
Universal XL hand brakes used on these cars.

Regarding your question of 8-rung ladders, it depends on the car
height. Branchline makes a nice set of 8-rung ladders for AAR box cars
of 10'-6" IH and Des Plaines Hobbies offers a set (actually created for
1937 AAR Canadian cars) for 10'-0" IH cars.
