Post subject:  D&RGW NG "Standard Lettering and Instructions" Blueprints

I am updating the painting and lettering guides used by the Friends of the C&TSRR for use on rolling stock restorations. The "Standard Lettering and Instructions" blueprints from the D&RG and D&RGW provide very specific information on painting instructions, as well as detailed guides on lettering stencil size, font, and placement on the car. I've gotten copies for five different cars from the CRRM (as many as they could find), but they all date from the early 1900s period. I am looking for copies for the 1926 rebuilds of the fleet, as well as the new lettering/painting guides for the transition to the Royal Gorge/Moffat Tunnel logo around 1936, and the Flying Rio Grande logo around 1940. Does anybody know where I can find copies of these blueprints?
