Golden Roundhouse Plans?

CBryars2
I have been looking for information on the Golden roundhouse addition that remained after around 1900.  Are there any plans are drawings tht might be used as the basis to scratchbuild?

Thanks Cameron

The Sellars Turntable is interesting, we had those on NZR down here too.

Chris,I believe he's referring to the addition with the fancy facade.

Not sure if these plans are what you're looking for but Underground Railway Press has a Maxwell drawing: CC-100 CC Six-Stall Roundhouse, Golden, Colo.

Here's the URL I used for their contact info: http://www.greatdecals.com/URP.html

Their 2016 plans catalog/list is a couple bucks, looks like a lot of good stuff, lots of narrow gauge.

Thanks for the help.  It is the fancy facade part that remained after 1900, so that is specifically what I am looking for.

On the CC-100 CC Six-Stall Roundhouse, Golden, Colo. - does it have any description as to whether it is a plan, drawing or just rough out?  Any price?  That sounds like a good lead.

Appreciate everyone - this is a great group!

There are some photos of Golden on DPL that show this building-also research prior threads on this forum.

Check out DPL photo X-9801 by Alex Martin.Also check out DPL's new easier to navigate photo format-just type in a subject heading and you get a page or several pages of photos large enough to determine if you want a closer look  at them

Don't know, they seem legit though, probably from a previous arrangement with John or Bruce. Judging by the list, they look like they're all John's drawings and not those he obtained from other sources and had available from his collection. They have plans from many different sources.

"CC-100 CC Six-Stall Roundhouse, Golden, Colo." is the extent of the description of this particular drawing. Under the heading of "Maxwell Plans" they note: "These are not exact drafting-type drawings, but field drawings with a wealth of measurements and other data. They are drawn in quarter-inch. Priced at $4.00 each." So, typical Maxwell drawings, which are pretty good.

Plans - specifically C&S water tanks plans?

In reply to this post by Mike McKenzie
Thanks Mike,
I reached out and sent a check to Underground Railway Press asking them for a copy of the Maxwell plans for C&S 16 x 24 50,000 water tanks, and received my check back with a nice note saying they did not have those plans.

So I guess I'll ask the group:
Does anyone know where I could get a copy of Maxwell's water tank plans? I'm scratch building a base for the Waterton tank, and some dimensions for specific timbers would be very handy. Thanks in advance for any info!

See the Files Section on the main blog page, look for "C&S Common Standards, Water Tanks".  C&S drawings of both size tanks are there.  These are the ones John Maxwell at one time sold.
