I am looking for engineering drawings (not the parts list drawings) for the Franklin Fire Door No. 9 (oval clamshell type). I have to make patterns for this part. I can measure the ones on the locomotive but having good drawings always helps.

I investigated those and was told that the Franklin archive was destroyed.

You could scan it with a 3D scanner add that with some hand measuring and come up with an accurate set of drawings.

I plan to make a solid model file set for a couple of the smaller Franklin's and an Economy fire doors.

My plans is to scan, scan, scan.

Our "paper" archives will be the future railfans only hope. We (yes you too!) should endeavor to preserve all the info needed to allow them 100% accuracy in the building of their recreations.
