Is this due to 'tree-hugger' laws forbidding the metal casting?  Can't they
be done elsewhere without CA being involved?  China or elsewhere?  I cast my
own boilers using lead shot and Alumilite to make a few M2's and I even
started playing with the idea of scratchbuilding a Z1, since I've already
constructed a SRR 2-8-8-2 simple articulated from Bowser H9 mechanics and a
LOT of detail parts on a PVC tube filled with lead.
