Anyone know of a material which simulates the 1" wire rope used on logging railroads?

I have used the cable found in picture hanging kits.  Found in most big box stores.

Try Bicycle brake or shifter cable, if thats to large try stipping some wire. if it's alredy silver great if it's copper colored paint it.

Thank you, gentlemen; I will try the picture frame wire first.
