How do you get to the diagram?  I looked and didn't even see it mentioned and selecting an item like "Rolling Stock" did absolutely nothing for me...

Okay, got it to work but the selection is very small... only see Beth gon, MHC, Super Chief, Superliner, Passenger car lighting and Unitrack.  Guess folks will need to scan or otherwise save the diagrams and submit them.

We have something very similar in plastic model kit world (with a much larger library of scans). I have contributed several myself.

Up to few years ago, it has a nice front-end website  which you coudl browse to the specific sheet you needed, but there was some kerfuffle and all that is left is the back end (Fotki site).  Still very useful, but not as pretty or easy to navigate.

There's a lot of Atlas an Kato locos. I was looking for a Kato Broadway Limited diagram and came across this, so I shared it.

More and more manufacturers put up documents such as instructions, parts lists and diagrams (in PDF format) on their websites which is also very helpful.

You posted a link the file on your local PC (not to Kato's website). No we know your full name.  :)

John, if you go to http://katousa.com/N/locomotive.html and select a loco, several have downloadable instruction sheet available in the Maintenance section.

Oops, forgot PDFs download first and then open locally.

As for the name, that's alright, all you could find out is what a great person I am.  :)

As I mentioned, I was specifically looking for the Broadway Limited cars, not the locos.
