my ESPEE MODELERS ARCHIVE
California's Railroad to the U.S. 1861 - 1996
Index of Published Southern Pacific Structure Plans
As the list of Plans I have is rather small, they are listed sort of alphabetically. The Plans I don't have, are listed by Magazine type. As always, these lists may not be accurate, but are presented in good faith. E&OE.
I cannot supply any copies of thse plans, please see the magazine publishers, or used book/mag dealers for availablility.
see also: SP Structure Colors guide to painting SP Structures.
see also: Depots of the Southern Pacific System for images of various SP structures.
As well Steam Age Equipment Company of Dunsmuir CA. published 5 Volumes of Southern Pacific Common Standard Plans - these are an invaluable addition to your library.
