How many people have original mine car plans/blueprints?
I think it would be neat to compare car design from different areas of the world
I have copies of 3 types of car plans from Morris Run coal co. Also are there any examples of the car left?

How complicated are the drawings/plans? If someone could email me a drawing would be pretty cool, preferably one with all the dimensions and as simple as possible.I have to do a final project for my Autocad class, and this would be a interesting project.

I have a 1947 mine car blueprint from the Maysville Mine No 1 Slope. 48" gauge steel body car.

The drawing came from the Glen Burn Colly when it was being torn down.

According to the print the "Susq Coll's Co" in Nanticoke was Glen Burn's parent company.
