these cover DSP&P cars that survived into the 1900's.
All were drawn in
the 1950's and 1960's. John's notes and comments on the
plans give insights into road numbers (with dates) and
construction details that are the backbone of many subsequent
articles and books on the DSP&P.
purchased a set of 183 plans from an estate sale via eBay that
covered a wide range of his drawings. My copies appear to be very old blackline prints on very soft paper that will not stand much
handling. I have no idea how complete the set is. For a complete
index of this collection, CLICK
John's son Bruce managed the Maxwell Collection for a
few years but he too has passed away. I don't know where the
original drawings are now. If you know who has the originals,
please contact me.
