South Park Folio Drawings C&S 1906

The plans on this page are from the Colorado and Southern folio drawings, as the cars and locomotives appeared around 1901 to 1906. The drawings are useful for body dimensions and general layout, but there were many modifications between the mid 1880's and 1906.

On locomotives, smoke stacks, headlights, air pumps, and other fittings were updated from time to time. Even cabs, boilers, and tenders were swapped out, so these drawings do not represent a particular locomotive at a particular time. Research the available photos to be sure of the details.

South Park Folio Drawings: Freight Cars

There are no C&S folio drawings for DSP&P freight equipment representing cars built before 1900, except for some cabooses that had been converted from DSP&P waycars. Some features on these folios did not exist on the DSP&P waycars, in particular the ladders and cupolas. The dimensions on the folios may be helpful.

 

The DSP&P waycars were renumbered in 1894 to the DL&G 1500 series and again in 1899 to C&S 300 series, finally ending up in C&S 1000 series in 1912. The correlation chart from Narrow Guage Pictorial Vol VII is shown below.

South Park Folio Drawings: Passenger Cars and two work cars

The plans on this page are from the Colorado and Southern folio drawings, as the cars and locomotives appeared around 1901 to 1906. The drawings are useful for body dimensions and general layout, but there were many modifications between the mid 1880's and 1906.

On passenger cars, the most noticable change was the removal of open platforms on the baggage cars and baggage ends of combines. Also, duck-bill roofs were replaced by more modern bullnose styles. Window treatments don't appear to have changed too much, but several cars were converted from coach to combine and vice versa.  Research the available photos to be sure of the details.These drawings are not to scale.

South Park Folio Drawings: Maintenance of Way (MOW)


The C&S folios cover a number of maintenance of way units built before 1900 that represent  DSP&P or DL&G MOW equipment. The dimensions and layouts may be helpful for modeling earlier versions.
