THIS IS TRIVIA, BUT IMPORTANT!
I am particularly appreciative of this drawing as I model the pre-1930 UPRR. Think of the research time that is rendered unnecessary by availability of this drawing. I believe this drawing can be labeled with confidence as important trivia; it is important to me anyhow! This find makes me wonder what other treasures I will discover as I catalog the last 3500 drawings in this group of scanned drawings.
I am on the “”hunt” for S.P.,L.A.&S.L. R.R. drawing no. A1, circa 1905. I am of the tentative belief this drawing is the first of the many drawings this railroad produced as they began operations circa 1905. There is more than a good chance I will succeed as I have already found no. A3, and up, in the 900 drawings I have cataloged thus far. Listen hard, because I will give out a mighty “‘whoop and a holler” when I do.
