I’m not sure if we have your specific drawing in our archives or not, but it is far better to be safe than sorry.
If you want to email me directly at miller at nwhs.org before you are going to be in Roanoke, I can make sure we will get it scanned with your schedule.

The size is large - about 7 feet in length. The tender body is shown in all views and maps to other drawings for truck and wheel assemblies. It is folded in a stiff envelope and was mailed to someone in Akron, Ohio way back before zip codes. Would the Society benefit from having this item scanned? I would think you probably would have a copy, but I wouldn't mind meeting someone the next time I'm in Roanoke and having someone look at it and scan it if you would like to.
