Trainz parts sells them but they are very expensive with shipping charges.

I just will try to make my own from white plastic rod on a lathe or maker bot machine when I buy one.

I have 6 #94 without insulators, that I got very cheap.

I will not pay more to restore something than I paid for the original item, unless it is free of course.

I wish I had access to a kiln, I have toyed with the idea of making porcelain insulators for years but no way to fire. Other option would be to cast out of resin with marble dust mixed in. Plastic ones are different from original Lionel insulators in look as 

I believe they still sell little kilns and it would be a nice thing to make because you can't find them, and the plastic ones are cheap looking
