For triples, I generally use the triple version of the Simplex SLJ. These were available NOS from Bicycle Classics until near the end of the Alan era. Sheldon still has the Simplex 103, a less expensive model with the same basic design as the SLJ triple, but it could be a problem mounting this on a Trek, as the ones Sheldon sells are in the French parts section of his site, so the clamp may be sized for the smaller French seattube OD.
There was also a Huret triple FD that was mated with the Duopar RD. I don't know if the FD was called Duopar, or something else. These are harder to find than the Simplex however.

I'm using a modern 105 front with a TA triple on Stronglight 49D cranks. Can anyone suggest a period correct front derailleur that would shift well with this set-up? (49/40/32)
