A number of former Maine Central Diesel locomotives now exist in preservation, so I thought this might be a good contribution.

www.newenglandsteam.org/diagrams

Use the link to go to the New England Steam Corporation website and under "resources" find the PDF. These drawings and technical data cover every class of Diesel operated by the Maine Central from 1939 forward. The note book came from the estate of a retired shop superintendent and has all manner of tech data on these locomotive.

New England Steam Corporation is restoring Maine Central #470, at the shop in Hancock, Maine. Please check out everything about the big Pacific and its re-birth.

Thanks Richard. Our #471, ne #571, has been extensively modified over the years (I refer to it as a GP7-1 with "party cab"), it's nice to have some historical documentation from its original owner.

Our opinion is, the whole point of knowledge is to share, learn and grow. New England Steam is more than happy to share. Plenty of you folks have helped us!
