My Canadian Pacific Seth Thomas railway clock suffered a broken pendulum suspension spring during a recent move (despite the pendulum being secured). Given it's age, is it likely that a spare part exists, or will one need to be fabricated? Are there instructions available if the latter approach is required?

An image posted by Don Linde on a NAWCC forum appears to be an exact match (reattached here). The middle part is spring steel, clamped between two thin pieces of brass:
