Need some help please. I noticed the right front handrail and mounts missing from my USA Trains NW2. I'VE been everywhere looking for a replacement.
The parts are no longer available from manufacturer (part# 08/08a).
I'm hoping someone from here can help me out, for a price.

Chances are you can get them printed, this fellow has been making Aristo parts and should be able to match the left one...

You might try bending them yourself from 1/16 brass rod, I have made several railings from that for the 44 tonner and Piko critters

I think the metal handrails are too thin to be sturdy enough printed, and I think Gilbert has mentioned this before, as well as the usa trains and Aristo stanchions on the sides of diesels.


Brass rod, painted has been done and looks like stock. They look pretty simple.
