Hi all,
Does any one have diagrams of narrow gauge H.K. Porters of any wheel arrangement? I would like to have some just for reference.
Thanks.

There is a book out about Porter Locomotives, is does not have many diagrams, but a number of pictures and data on each 'Class' of locomotive.  It is a reprint of the Porter 13th edition catalog.  You can find it at the NMRA Company store. You do not have to be a member to purchase it.

David, if you are interested, I can find my copy of the old Finescale Modeler industrial annual which has drawings with some dimensions of Arizona 20" gauge Porters. Most of these lokies still exist out there. I can send you some photos of the drawings if you give me a little time and your e mail address.
