Top elevation diagram of an EMD SD35 ?

Hi, I am wondering if anyone has a top down view/elevation diagram or drawing of an SD35 they would be able to share?


I'm trying to cut styrene for the walkway and dynamic brake area.


Regards, Ben

Good morning,

I seem to recall there is a PDF of the SDP35 hat has an overhead drawing.page 425.  Too early I don't remember how to make this an active link right now.  See below.

HTH,

Thanks. Am aware of that one, which is why I'm hoping there's a better one somewhere 😉

Have clean side & plan of GP-35. Would that be any help?

Actually 4 views. Top, Front, Rear, & one side of GP35. Clean meaning Sharp. Can scan at 600 dpi.  Believe they could be a good starting point.

The other two views at higher res. If you want the previous views at higher resolution I will post. Saw that could be up to 5000.

I should have noted that scans were taken from:

Thank you very much for these. I should be able to splice something together that's right for an SD35 top-down view. Ben

Raiwire resizes downloaded images automatically (to conserve forum storage space), so if you want to get a high resolution image to someone, it has to be done another way.

Thanks for the comment on resizing. First time trying to send photo.

Also not sure of this. Isn't the difference in the frame being longer, not the carbody? Noted somewhere that loco was built on same frame as SD28.
