In a recent conversation with Pat Scott, I learned that these brackets are, according to Pat, "plentiful along any ex Wabash lines in Illinois and Indiana." If any of you are interested in assisting me in my quest to acquire about a dozen of these brackets then please contact me forthwith. This request has no expiration date. I am ready to move on this when you are. If you have good, clean instances of these brackets in stock or you can go out and get them in the field in reasonably good, not-heavily-corroded condition, I am interested in talking with you about funding your trip and arranging shipping to California. I am interested in getting this done as an open-ended project for as long as it takes. Thank you. 559-303-4464 This request has no expiration date. Please call if you can help.
