You can still get the hillman, although I contacted them to see if they still had the nickle-plated ones and they do not... I guess things have changed since they were bought by Silvergate. That's who distributes them now... if you go to the hillman site, check out the URL....

I like the hillman bridge clamps and the wheel stops...

Yes, I should have mentioned that Richard did a few of each run in nickel plate, it was not a "stocked" item. I was used to buying them at the train shows where he brought some.

Yes, I got an email, but it implied (to me at least) that this practice was no longer common. I can understand demand-driven manufacturing, but I was just hoping that this "tradition" of nickle-plating a few of each run would continue. I will follow up by email, but I got the feeling that just ordering one would not cause it to happen. (and I do understand).

Regards, Greg
