Cast Parts? Is Richard Trickel still in business?

I've finally had some time to look at all my trains & parts. I'm going to tackle some signal projects and I'm having trouble finding parts. Especially the larger cast signal parts. I need some top castings for the American Flyer large semaphores. Barry higenbothem said he can't get them any more. So I got out my "Parts" file and found them (along with other hard to find prewar Flyer signal castings) in Richard Trickels parts book. Is he still in business? I find nothing about him when I google. TeBolt does not have them and neither does Olsens. I also need some Lionel cast bases for 82 semaphores, 99N block signal ect (all the same casting). Here's a couple Flyer semaphores. Left is the late version in light green with a decal, middle early orange manual operating with all brass plate and right is the common one. Who has these top castings?

Trickel was at York, so they are still in business. Unsure if he has those parts or not....give him a call.

Richard passed away some years ago. His son Eric now makes and sells the parts.
It is very difficult to get him to mail anything so your best bet is to just wait until April and have someone pick them up at York for you. Good luck.
