I've been making replacement playfield rails for about 8 years and continue to supply numerous hobbyist and professional pinball restorers including HEP. My rails are made of oak and are cut and routed to match the existing rails that often have their vinyl covering damaged or split at the finger joints.

I have been inundated with a lot of inquiries and orders recently and I apologize if anyone has fallen through the cracks. I am trying to catch up on all orders and have shipped all rails that have been paid for. If you are looking for a set to get made or have a question regarding a set that you do not see listed below please contact me at taylorva72 at gmail dot com

Thanks to everyone in the community for the business- Taylor

I am going to use this single thread to update what I have in stock or what rails I have templates for.

In stock and ready to ship I currently have;

TZ, HS2

Rails are usually $55 shipped in the continental US. Firepower, Eviel Knievel and Sorcerer are $65 as they take extra time with either the finish or different wood used. If you would like rails that I do not have in stock you can send them to me. I do have several titles already to use as templates and often get new rails in to use as templates so will add them to the list. I accept payment by Paypal but have done trades for parts/mods in the past so feel free to ask.

Titles I currently have templates for include;

Twilight Zone
The Simpsons Pinball Party
Theatre of Magic
Scared Stiff
The Addams Family
Bad Cats
Sorcerer ($65 shipped)
Road Show
Monster Bash
Star Trek the Next Generation (right side only)
Attack From Mars
Safe Cracker
Tommy(just the inner wood rails)
Fun House
Terminator 2
Indiana Jones B/W
Taxi
Brahms Stokers Dracula
Doctor Who
White Water
No Good Gofers
Medieval Madness (one side)
Data East Checkpoint
Flash
Firepower ($65 shipped)
Fish Tales
No Good Gofers
Creature from the Black Lagoon
High Speed 2 The Getaway
Evil Knievel (blue dyed and then lacquered) ($65 shipped)
Bride Of Pinbot
Tales of the Arabian Nights
MET pro(not sure if there is a difference between this and the LE/Prem)
Paragon

Backboards
AFM(owner will need to transfer over holes for t-nuts and saucer bracket)
T2
Taxi
TZ

I can usually turn the rails over in 2-3 weeks but it is weather dependent. Cold and damp conditions can extend turnover time. All rails are milled and finished by myself.

PM sent on WH20 rails

#3 3 years ago

Taylor I could use a set for TSPP if you have them available.

#4 3 years ago

I think I would pony up for at the least the right hand side of STTNG (heavy playfield). Not sure if these commonly fracture, particularly this game in this spot, but if you have an interest in making these and there is a market why not?

#5 3 years ago

I believe both sets have been spoken for.

I may have the STTNG rail and could do that one but will post a pic just to make sure it is the correct one.

I do not currently have TSPP rails to use as a template but can make them if an original set is sent. Another pinsider has inquired about TSPP as well as may be sending them to me so will update if I find out that it is the case.

#6 3 years ago

Next time you make white water, I'll take a set. No rush as I'm still at least 1k in parts from being able to restore it.

Quoted from johnwartjr:

You're on the list.

#8 3 years ago

Any chance of a Sorcerer? I'm thinking the gray wood color contact paper ones will have to go once I get my PF back.

#9 3 years ago

If you send yours in, Taylor can make you new ones. And they are super nice!

#10 3 years ago
Quoted from KloggMonkey:

I have done sorcerer before. I think I finished the rails with a natural stain and several coats of lacquer. They turned out nice. I did charge a little more because I believe some of the rails are a thicker stock. Nothing crazy, just not $40. Drop me a PM if interested.

#11 3 years ago

Got my set today for TAF. Arrived in perfect shape. Two thumbs up, they look great!

#12 3 years ago

Got my FH rails and cabinet skids for Totan today cabinet skids turned out great Taylor, anyone looking at these you will be amazed the original poplar flexes a lot on he playfield the oak ones are very solid no flex makes a difference and they look great a must for a restoration imop

For anyone on the fence, Taylor does great work. His rails are outstanding. Everything lines up and the finish is outstanding. Packaged very well also. Get rid of those crappy wrapped vinyl rails and go oak. Great job Taylor!

#15 3 years ago

Any idea on rails for a DE Checkpoint?

#16 3 years ago

I might pick up a FH set, mine is kinda shitty

Thanks for the endorsement.

I can be interested in the TZ ones, if I decide to replace my playfield (meaning I need to find one at a good price). I'll let you know.

#19 3 years ago

Hi Taylor,

Have you ever done Black Knight?

#20 3 years ago
Quoted from solarvalue:

Hi Taylor,
Have you ever done Black Knight?

I have not.... But would if you need them.

I now have a set of T2 to use as a template.

Taylor did the rails for the Sorcerer full restore I am working on and they look fantastic. He is very fairly priced also. Buy with confidence.

You don't happen to do EM? Maybe Centigrade 37?

#39 2 years ago

I don't have EM.
I have some MB and CFTBL rails coming in to be redone. I have orders for 10 sets of rails currently so Pretty busy. Best thing to do is to contact me before you start the tear down or directly after sending out a Playfield. I try to be prompt but the finishing is weather dependent.Thanks everyone for the work and for being patient with my schedule.
