I think that there's some of the concrete castings in RailRoad Kits FSM Coal Dock #155 set.

Thanks again for the replies, now all I have to do is decide if I want to pay as much or more for shipping than the parts cost ?........or just carve them out of a piece of wood or plastic ?T.C.

Thanks again
I think I can contact Campbels and get the parts and maybe the drawings needed to convert my northern water tank into the type with bents.
They say they will send replacement parts if I can prove I had one of there kits or was scratch building ? The cost "they say" is usually around 10.00 shipped ?
I also want to thank you all for the links to all those cool parts, I didn't realize there were so many detail parts made.
