NSWGR Drawings List

For some time now I have been collecting drawings and blueprints from the former New South Wales Government Railways. My main focus has been on steam engine drawings, however I have been happy to take whatever I can get my hands on.

Most of my collection are drawings generated by the NSWGR themselves, primarily for locomotive parts however there are also a substantial collection of tool drawings, which are of considerable interest in their own right.

This list that is published here is incomplete – I have in excess of 1000 drawings, however so far I have lacked the time to sit down and catalogue the entire collection, it is one of those “I’ll get to it” things – however this is what I have catalogued so far.

  1. I am looking for the drawings for the main frame casting for the C38 Class Steam Loco. I understand it was a box frame construction.

  2. I’ll have a look through my boxes of drawings and let you know, I know I do have a fair few 38 class ones about.

  3. Hi. Im involved with the state mine railway at lithgow and we’re deperately searching for drawings for the Z26 class, in particular the radial trailing bogie. Would you have any drawings?.
