PRR Standard Plans


Here is a partial list of PRR standard plans. Plans that I have copies of have the revision code for the revision I have. If there's no link, I haven't scanned it yet (but will soon!) Plans that I don't have copies of have "need" as the revision. If you have a copy of any needed plans or better quality copies of plans I have online, please let me know! A few of the plans I have online so far are from a PC era (circa 1975) plan book. By this time, some of the PRR plans were in fairly ratty condition. Also 70's photocopiers weren't all that great. As I find better copies, I'm replacing the worn ones...

Thanks to the generosity of Walter Stafa who loaned me a copy of his plan book to scan, many more PRR plans are now online! Also, thanks to Pat McKinney who loaned me his plan book with about 300 plans, the earliest being from the 1890's! Also, thanks to Michael O. Brown who sent scans of some other missing plans and to Eugene Diemling who sent me a CD with many more plans that he had and Charles Crawford for filling in some holes. Lastly thanks again to Pat McKinney for loaning me even more plans to add here!

Note that these files require Adobe's Acrobat Reader (version 5 or higher). It's free, just go to http://www.acrobat.com to download it.

Hey I don't want to see those PC diagrams!
