Stake pockets?

Post by wa6mdi » Sun May 09, 2021 5:39 am

Anyone know where one can obtain a replacement stake pocket for 1,5 inch flat car? Recently obtained a used car and it needs several replacements. These pockets appears to be about 1/2 inch wide and 3/4 inch deep.

You will find them at Despatch Railroad

They are listed under small parts.

Very enjoyable people to work with.
