    Default Blueprints/ measurements?

    I'm making D&RGW #50 (formerly Sumpter Valley #101 and a Davenport NG 30t gas/mech switcher) and Georgia Pacific #9 (the 2-6-2ST used in the movie "The Ring of Fire"). Does anyone know where to find blue prints or measurements of the two or similar locomotives?

    I tried once, forgot what I did with the aftermath. Its not that hard to do, its just tedious work to get things to look the same.

    I would suggest using a model that has color on it, mainly the black or the yellow model, less work that would need to be done on finding where the right color goes.

    I've got all the colored one, but I noticed that the ones on the DLS are different than D&RGW #50.

    I couldn't find any, but I did finds a couple more pictures.
    This one's from Don's Depot.

    And there are some at http://www.drgw.net/gallery/DRGW50NG

    A standard Plymouth locomotive is about 19 feet long and around 10 feet high. If you have a good profile view you could use those as a guide, since the Davenport is probably about the same size.
