Are there replacements available?  I have a new box car with two broken steps.

Dear Yardmaster,
I also have a Spectrum boxcar with broken stirrup steps.

I was planning to buy replacements but:

a) they are not cheap http://estore.bachmanntrains.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=66_69_75&products_id=8860

b) I wonder if they are any stronger than those mounted on Murphy roof Spectrum boxcars, which do not bend but break like biscuits...

So my question is, before I buy these replacements, are they actually stronger or equally prone to breaking?
Many thanks and best wishes from Tokyo,
Zubi

I asked, and I am glad I did, because the correct steps for Spectrum cars are different!
Here is the link (please note that they come in three colours to choose from): http://estore.bachmanntrains.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=66_69_674_134&products_id=10640

Parts Team said that they are better quality.
With best wishes from Tokyo, Zubi
