Glenwood's circa 1970 reprint of "Recent Locomotives (1886)" is apparently not online, but available from used booksellers. This has six 4-4-0 drawings from the 1880 edition, and seven more from the 1886 edition. The latter include both a Brooks and a Baldwin 3' gauge 4-4-0, the latter built for the Fulton County NG line and including cross sections. These drawings and the accompanying texts are copied from contemporary technical magazines, and much more informative than what is normally found in modeling magazines.

A much less well known source is "Modern Locomotives" of 1900, online at Google Books, found with: "modern locomotives: illustrations, specifications and details of typical". This appears to be ancestral to the much better known Locomotive Dictionaries and Cyclopedias. It covers both American and European steam and electric locomotives. The contents consist mostly of a photograph and detailed dimensions, for nearly 400 engines from the previous decade. There are numerous general and detail drawings for the larger engines. There is also some interesting technical discussion on recent trends in locomotive design. There are only a few NG drawings, including a meter gauge Brooks built 4-4-0(#23) and 4-8-0(#123) for the Central do Brazil, and the Quincy & Torch Lake's1894 Mogul(#94). Some very interesting NG engine are only shown with photographs here: #23 is an early version of the White Pass's outside framed 4-6-0s; #76 an early version of the C-17; #141 a BLW outside framed 0-6-4T for helper service on the Costa Rica Ry; #152 a Vauclain compound 4-4-0; #188 a United Verde Vaulclain compound Mogul.

The Locomotive Dictionary of 1906, the first, is also available on line, but only has 3 drawings and a diagram of late model SG 4-4-0s.

I should be able to find plans for RGS #36 4-4-0 but I am coming up short.

The dual gauge is spoken for pending payment.
I let you know if it becomes available. I will sell lesser amounts of the HOn3 track.

Good news. The even better news is that the site is not completely up to date so if the item you're looking for is not listed get in touch with them.

Hi Bruce,

I purchased the Elgoo Mars SLA printer, I use Fusion 360 (hobbyist license) to model and Chitubox as the slicer as I am a Mac user...only tip I can offer that has been hard to find is that you should „prime“ the build plate with a light coat of resin and UV it for a couple of minutes...this allows the flimsy window frames and other fine parts to be removed without damage...sorry I cannot show any pics at the moment as my workshop is all packed up at the moment for renovations...the FDA pics look pretty good though.

Regards,

Mark

I may have to live with it.  It would be narrower and taller by 6-8 inches.  I'll give it some thought.

Mark,

I have an inexpensive FDM printer.  I have had decent success with windows and doors.  However I will be purchasing a resin printer down the road.  This will allow me the ability to print finer details.

The photos show my efforts Rockhill Furnace Scale.

What 3D printer and design software are you using?

Some of the white-metal casting folks have windows. SSLtd, B.E.S.T., maybe B.T.S.? I don’t recall any that big, though.

Re: Frame Windows

I had the same problem for an engine house. I just cut up the Grand windows and sectioned them together to make the size I needed. This was before 3d printers. The next time I need custom sizes, I'm going to just print them.
