Old School Bottom Bracket

Hi, I am currently fixing up and old 70's Carlton road bike; the bottom bracket cups are badly worn with chrome chipping etc so I was planning to change to a modern sealed bottom bracket, however, I don't seem to be able to find a modern bottom bracket of the right size (68 x 126 square taper)...

Is this size now obsolete?

My other option was to replace the cups and bearing but again, struggling to find any. Planning to visit LBS tomorrow (internet only so far) but any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks, in anticipation of the replies.
