We are in the process of restoring CNJ business car 98. Several items are needed such as the ceiling dome lights, in addition to wall fans and one pullman interior door. The door size needed is 21" x 78".

Often the dome glass light fixture bases are available, but the glass domes are hard to find.

I found this company on the lampguild website: http://www.lampguild.org/Default.html?D ... xt.shtml&1

They make molded glass etc, and might make lamp diffuser glass for RR car light fixtures.

Molding
Unique to Vitri-Forms, is a glass molding division. With our 50 lb. capacity melt oven, we are able to mold and press molten glass in the shape of your design. We melt primarily clear recycled glass, though many colors are available. Most of our molds are machined using gray cast iron or graphite. We offer a chemical strengthening process, which increases the resistance to thermal shock. Small borosilicate molded pieces are within our capabilities as well.
