Dear All

Can anyone recommend any good sopurces for official plans for pre-1950 NH passenger cars, diners, observations etc.?

I've just bought Sweetland's "Passenger cars of the New Haven Railroad" which is an interesting source of photos, but what I really need are the plans.

Any help much appreciated!

Thanks

Hello Otto

For modelling purposes (may end up having to kit bash/modify some existing coaches to make more accurate rolling stock)

Thanks

I suggest the "The New Haven Railroad's Streamline Passenger Fleet" 1939-1953 by Geoffrey H. Doughty
TLC Publishing Co., 2000. It contains many photos and car planes.
