Reply to "Is it likely that anyone will be making replacement parts in future for my lionel allegheny that is suffering from zinc rot?"

Many times what folks blame on zinc rot is simply poor material choice for a part. 

Two items that come to mind are the cab aprons on the Lionel Niagaras and the feedwater pumps on the MTH Niagaras. Neither can withstand forces from normal running or handling. When purchasing either of these engines on the used market look to make sure these are not already broken or missing.
