???MAGAZINE INDEX HELP???

Would someone who has access to a PC model railroad and "real" railroad
magazine index be kind enough to do a search  for any builders drawings of the
Sierra RR #3?  This was the loco used in High Noon, Breakheart pass (I think),
Petticoat Jct. and The Wild, Wild West.I know there are some online indexs
available but for the life of me can't find them!
The reason for the request is that I wrote to a manufacturer suggesting they
make a model of this 4-6-0 (due to it's many movie appearances) and they asked
me if I had any drwaings of it.  I wrote to Railtown (where the #3 is located
at the museum) but they wrote back and said they weren't aware of any drawings.
TIA for any advice and guidenece.  I guess any replys should be  sent directly
to me but I'll watch this board as well.

There are photos and plans of Sierra #3 (by Gary Caviglia) in the Jan/Feb '91
issue of the Narrow Gauge & ShortLine Gazette, page 74.

Or, you could go to Railtown (or RailFair '99 at Sacramento next June) and
measure it yourself!

Try the Model Train Magazine Index at:

http://www.accurail.com/tm.htm

or use the following link to find a reference to the drawings you're looking for:

http://www.accurail.com/cgi-bin/tmcgi.exe?opt=S&cmdtext=sierra+4-6-0+...

Doesn't this qualify as a real index?

Re magazine index:

If you are a member, the NMRA Kalmbach Library does searches for free.
Your only cost is photocopies of whatever you want from the resulting
list. They do a great job!
