What a Treasure Trove!
What a treasure trove this collection of drawings is!
Seriously, from these files you could model - or recreate actual full-sized prototypes of - genuine NYC & HRRR depots, stations, freight houses, stock yards, track pans, ash pits, a section foreman's 3 bedroom house, a concrete explosives bunker, section houses, privvies, switch & flag cabins, coal boxes and bins, water columns & pits, butterfly canopies for 15' or 12' platforms AND even a rhomboid turntable control cabin!
Not only do all of these structures appear in fine detail, there are even FINER construction details of agents' desks, bulletin boards, letter press stands, interior cornices, exterior support brackets, seats, chimneys and smoke stacks, and several detailed representations of doors and windows of myriad shapes and sizes.
This really is a SUPERB collection of priceless historical significance. It's just plain wonderful to troll through.
Many thanks to all involved in making these files available, and especially to Tom Gebracht for suggesting emailing them to me instead of posting a DVD or flash drive; that saved me $ which I can use to buy more such gems, and I have!
I can't recommend these file enough, especially if you'd like to build accurate models of NYC & HRRR facilities.
