Hello everyone,
I am currently modeling a boatload of structures from the Colorado Gold and Silver booms of the late 1800s. I am finding myself in need of some measurements to accurately model these in 1:20.3 scale. Would anyone know where to find such prints?

Thank you so much for the information. I will most definitely be downloading that.
I am the general manager of the O.c. Railroad in Jefferson City Missouri. I am also the builder of most of our bridges and structures. Ive had a r equest for the Yankee Girl Shaft House. Ive built one, but it is not to scale, as we are needing 1:20.3. Would anyone know the height of her roof in 1 to 1 scale?
Thanks.

May I suggest that you review Mike Blazek's web site for plans. You can always have a plan set photocopy to the scale you're interested in.

I know that Lowell Ross had a Yankee Girl kit. As Lowell was very accurate to the prototype, and as a professional architect, his drawings are very accurate. Anvil Mountain Models http://www.anvilmountainmodels.com was sold to Keith Wiseman. You may be able to obtain a plan set from Keith. His web site is http://www.locopainter.com

I have this (put away somewhere along with a lot of other model RR books). As I recall, these drawings are not based on specific prototypes, so "builder beware."
