Harmer Steel in Portland, OR can help you out with the smaller sizes like that.

They're real good at small rail sections, right down to 20 and 12 pound for mines and even 8 pound if you want a backyard amusement park train.

Cleveland Track Materials rolls joint bars from used freight car axles on a rolling mill built in the 1890s. Their plant is located in the former Wellman Seaver Morgan plant.
