If anybody needs a few sets, I found some today. I had an appointment at Finkl & Sons, the heavy forge and minimill on the river at Cortland (armitage). You may recall that either Finkl or General Iron scrapped a handful of ex-CNW gallery cars about ten years ago. The trucks are still sitting there, off Cortland. Pics:

Anybody know any car numbers for cars scarapped at General Iron? They must have gone there via an intermediary as Metra never sold any to General iron directly.
