The Bethlehem Car Works once sold cast metal parts under their "Kit Bits" line.  They still sell the car parts, but the locomotive parts were sold off (To a company in Pennsylvania, I think).  Does anyone know who sells these parts now?

To answer my own question,  I recieved an email from Bethlehem Car Works..  the parts are being made by D Hicks Trains of Allentown Pa.  I have contact info if anyone is interested.

** Yes I have spoken to and do purchase from Dan Hicks. Recently only decals, but when I was kitbashing, doing a back dieting of Mantua's Reading, P7 class, 4-4-2 to its original C1 class, 4-4-4, Reading type configuration, I need a proper tender for as built. Dan Hicks was able to supply me with one. Dan as needs be puts together kits for these tenders.
 Here is the as completed, with Dan's tender. Just like the Reading built it.

Here is the Fireman's side. His tender made the look of this model. The mantua tender was much to modern. Reading replaced the tender when the loco series was rebuilt.  
 The original manufacture was a company named " Sparrow Point".
