Check out Ultimate Restorations show on the Badger fish car

http://www.ultimaterestorations.com/badger-2/

As I remember the restorer for Mid Continent RR Museum found someone to make
the special patterned glass for the clerestory.
Might be worth contacting them if you do not have a local source.

Avalon Rail inc. may have done / did the work.


A side point of interest

Many of the pressed glass patterns can be sourced through stained glass supply houses; older commercial glass houses also have a lot of specialty glass options available due to old home restorations and other architectural demands.  Baltimore Streetcar Museum has used Chaudron Glass for years; I remember looking through books of glass samples when researching "ripple" glass for one of the streetcar restorations.
