I have three 21" vista dome passenger car kits but don't have the vista dome structures for the roofs.

Anyone know of a source for the dome structures?  The openings are ~6.0" in length.

Atlas, GGD, and LIONEL are not a source last time I checked; and, received no response after several attempts at MTH.

Any leads will be most welcome.  Thanks.

Why not Lionel 21" pax car domes? They are still listed on the Lionel parts website.

I would like to swap out the dome section on these new 21" Canadian Pacific cars.  They didnt use the Budd style dome, but the angular Pullman style dome.   These were supposed to become my VIA Rail repaints, now reevaluating.

I'm not sure Lionel ever made a scale length Budd type dome roof section?  Just the angular style and higher profile UP and NP dome.  

 

PRRHSC, I've scoured LIONEL's parts database for both 21" and 18" pax dome cars and found no joy.  The domes available for separate sale are, as mentioned by Scott, the Pullman Standard, flat glass variety.  The Budd, curved-glass variety, are sold installed in the car shell if they are sold at all--the domes alone are not available separately.

I did discover a suitable dome on eBay, but it was included with the Phoenix Railways dome car and the seller quite naturally was unwilling to sell the dome separately.

So, I'm still looking.
