    First post on the forum, I've been using it a lot! I'm restoring a 1979 Lionel pop up and I need help identifying a propane hose so I can buy a replacement. It goes from the regulator to trailer. 3/8" NPT on regulator side, similar size flare fitting of some sort on trailer side (goes into copper hard line), 24" length. In this Lionel, all the propane runs is a small cook top.

    Is this a standard hose? What are they called? Finding the regulator itself and pigtail to the tank was easy . If not standard where do you go to get something like this made?

    Thanks in advance for the help!

    The male flare is not seen much anymore. Just get a more common hose with a female end and use a brass connector fitting.

    You could also make it yourself with a flare tool and some copper tubeing. Its not easy though.

    Thanks for the responses, I found a 22" propane hose that would need a single male-male flare fitting to work so I'm going to try that. Copper sounds good (I have a flare kit for brake lines etc) but i'm not sure how it would look going up the exterior.

    I would but I'm guessing the shipping to Canada would be too high!
