I am working on some research in regards to NYC HW commuter club cars, NYC 71 - 75, 96 - 99, and was wondering if anyone on the list has a copy of the diagram for these cars? I am wanting to include a drawing of the floorplan on my page about NYC-patterned single window coaches (link below) but have had no luck in finding anything on these cars.

This past month I have gone through and added quite a bit of information on the single window coach page with a wealth of information being added in regards to the NYC prototype, including the news that Micro-Trains producing a model of a NYC HW single windowed coach in N-scale and also release a new four-wheel truck for heavyweights. If a visit hasn't been recent I would suggest that one is made. I am grateful for the great amount of help that I have had already in developing the page... hopefully more yet can be done!!! The link to the page is below...

http://n-scalevarnish.info/index/varnish/NYC-patterned%20single%20window%20coaches.htm

Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!

At first I thought this helped, but I don't think it's quite what you're looking for:

That's a great article. Someone over on The Railwire mentioned it right after MT announced that they were doing the NYC coach in N-scale. Odd really but for some reason NYC apparently didn't include a floorplan in their diagram books for the cars that were converted... probably the only road I have found that has not done this.
