DSP&P Plans by John Maxwell

The late John Maxwell was renowned for his well researched drawings of Colorado narrow gauge equipment and structures. I purchased a set of Maxwells plans from an estate auction that covered a wide range of his drawings. Those that pertain to DSP&P era equipment are shown here. My copies appear to be very old photocopies or blackline pronts on very soft paper that will not stand much handling. I have no idea how complete the set is. John's son Bruce managed the Maxwell Collection for a few years but he too has passed away. I don't know where the collection is now.


All images displayed below have been reduced in size. There are 3 locomotives, 3 passenger cars, and 7 freight cars in the DSP&P section. All were drawn in the late 1950's and 1960's.
