So i know i have had a few posts about possible railroad ideas, my ongooing ideas, etc. Currently my mind is on some sort of hybrid layout using select sections from the Model Railroader Project Layout of the Beer Line and something else. the something else has become the AB facility down in St. Louis (this will be a major part of the railway but not serve as its entire purpose if that makes sense.
I am posting here however to see if anyone can point me in the right direction for maps or even information about the Manufacturers railway?

Model Railroading Magazine had a two part article on Manufacturers Railway. You're looking for the December 1993 and January 1994 issues. Both are available now on eBay.
If you date your railroad back far enough, MRS had a three truck Shay (built 10/07, serial number 1962, road number 3, sold 1912). The picture of it in the Manufacturers 100 Year publication is dated 1910 (same as Alwin's photo).
