7 1/4 Mountaineer Chimney

Good evening all,

I am posting this for a friend who has recently acquired a 7 1/4" gauge Mountaineer,

He is looking for a chimney pattern for a FR Alco Mountaineer in 7 1/4 gauge, the smokebox diameter is 10.5 inches, the chimney tube is 3 inch diameter, and he was wondering if there might be one in the pattern bank? Or if anyone might have any suggestions.

Many thanks in advance for any help.

Best regards,

Rich

Is Mountaineer not a stovepipe chimney anyway?

The nearest we have in the pattern bank is a Romulus chimney, which I suspect to too small. The base suits a smokebox dia of about 8", it is 16" high, dia near base = 2.8", near top 3.2", top cowl is 5.1" dia. I have a feeling that this would not suit as it is the wrong shape... definitely not a stovepipe!
Let me know anyway.
