According to the parts diagram it appears to be flat.  Can you remove the existing cover and trace it onto a sheet of metal or plastic and then cut it out and drill the screw holes?

I was just going to post something along the lines of Chuck's great idea, but was going to suggest layering thinner pieces of plastic sheet with holes to provide clearances if necessary. But I feel Chuck's idea of using metal if possible is better.

Good luck and let us in on how things work out.

I had the same problem trying to find a floorboard for a Big Hauler 4-6-0, the one on the Fireman's side just under the air pump.
I found a scrap piece of styrene the same thickness as the Engineer's side and made a mirror image copy, painted it black with white edges. And I am very proud of myself because I can't tell the difference between it and an original. And it was made from scrap a little bit of old, black, spray paint and a swipe with a white paint pen, everything I already had on hand.
 
Go for it smcgill, the satisfaction of knowing you fixed it yourself is overwhelming!!

Let us know what happens!

I wonder if the newer Climax's motor cover would fit ?  Undecided
