Help! Need springs!

How about those caboose truck leaf springs that used to be made by Silver Streak (I think) ? 
Not sure if they are still commercially available, or not, but they turn up at train shows pretty frequently (originally in little clear plastic boxes), and probably lots of folks have some in their parts collections.

Good Luck,

Just wondering if anyone can help me find some leaf springs for a pair of HO scale Lewis tender trucks.I don't remember if these trucks came from NJCB, NWSL or Sunset. The trucks Greenway sells are not sprung.

I'm sending along a photo of the Greenway trucks to show what I'm talking about. I have a few pair of these brass trucks. One is actually sprung with very thin working leaf springs. 

Unfortunately out of the 8 springs 6 have broken. I have looked in the PSC catalog and on Greenway but haven't found any replacements.

If anyone has springs or knows of a source I would very much appreciate the help.
