Can anyone here point me in the right direction on finding engineering prints for a bridge located in Michigan. The bridge is on the former Jackson Branch of the NYC that is now operated by the Southern Michigan Railroad Society.

The line was officially abandoned by Conrail in 1982. Both the engineering departments of CSX and NS have been contacted with no luck. The bridge would have been constructed by the Michigan Central.

I too am interested in various Pratt truss bridges and would like to locate any archive that contains blueprints on these structures. Any help you can offer on this is greatly appreciated!
