The drawings show both sides of selected cars and locomotives built for the Northern Pacific between 1947 and 1965. The purpose of these drawings is to show lettering and color schemes that were used to individualize the Streamliners during the era. Because there was little standardization of roof details, they are not shown, except for radio antenna and kitchen vents. Side details show the standard AAR prescribed safety grab irons and accurate position of the windows and doors. Underbody details are shown only to the extent that they show on the builder photographs of the cars. We have created very generic trucks for the drawings and must not be used for modeling if truck detail is important.
