        Wes,

        Check out Rusty Stumps Scale Models. He has all that you mentioned and more. Here is the link to his website.

        http://www.rustystumps.com/

        The owner Walt is a member and advertiser here on the forum, and he fills orders promptly. His shipping costs are among the most reasonable I've see, too.

          Wes, you might also be interested by the depot details set of Ragg's ... to Riches : http://www.raggstoriches.biz/

          and by the castings available from Rusty Rails : http://www.rustyrail.com/CastingsHOScale.htm

          You could also have a glance at the Evergreen Hill Designs line of products.

            For what it's worth, I'd split casting makers into 2 categories: Assemblies and single pieces. The Rusty Rail stuff is a great example of assemblies, where you have shelves with bottles, tools, boxes, etc, on the shelves. SS Ltd (http://www.jaksind.com/Page/ss_main.html) is a good source for individual items, e.g. a barrel, a a sack or small set of sacks.
