Guys I wanted to upgrade the FLUTED stack and the boiler front round button door that the number goes on. Years ago when I had a memory I think I used brass replacement. I don't like the stock 2 piece stack and its so thick around the top rim. The brass button I think a tad different so you could at least get a number on it. Maybe someone or Louis could tell me which detail part might work for MDC Shay.Not straight stack the slightly fluted and number board button for front of boiler.MDC Shay HO.Thanks so much guys....its all coming together nicely and runs great...now the finishing.

Steve, Bachmann's website sold at one time the boiler door, boiler number plate, and tapered smokestack. Picture below.
And, Cal Scale sold brass and plastic parts for the Shay; https://www.bowser-trains.com/history/hocalscalesteam.html
