Denver, South Park and Pacific Railroad
Index of John Maxwell's Plans

This page contains a list of drawings of DSP&P / C&S as well as D&RGW / RGS and  other Colorado narrow gauge lines drawn by John Maxwell. John's heroic work of recording the history of Colorado narrow gauge railway equipment spanned the years 1948 to 1972 or a little later. His plans form the basis for dozens of commercial models and many were published in model railroad magazines.

My collection of 183 plans came from an estate sale via eBay and is nearly complete. They consist of moderately aged blackline prints that I had scanned at a professional imaging shop. The original linens of the drawings are presumably secure with John's family, but copies have not been offered for sale for many yeasrs.

The DSP&P plans are online in the table below -- left click the file link and use File >> Save As to put the file on your hard drive.

If you would like a copy of other plans on the list, contact me. Quote full plan number and name.

If you have a Maxwell drawing that is not listed here, contact me - maybe we can make a trade.
