Does anyone know a good supplier of gauges - to be honest there has got to be a market (limited admittedly) in the production of dummy gauges for loco cabs. I am completing my Brit and at the serious detail stage, and would like to add the appropriate gauges other than the steam pressure gauge currently sat (as it should be!) over on the fireman's side.

Only that I'm in a similar position (same kit maybe?). I was planning of taking photos of the dials and then reducing them in a graphics package and see what comes out of a printer. Maybe put a thin peace of plastic or clear varnish on top.
This is a very late response as I've only just spotted this post. I made my own dummy gauges based on photos and the drawings Perrier had on his drawings to make up the gauge dials which I printed on gloss photographic paper and glued onto my dummy gauges, As Standardsteam mentions I coated the final product with clean varnish.
