    Yorkshire Patent Steam Wagon of about 1905 - 1910.

    A friend is building a scale model (big enough to ride on) of the above wagon. He has been unable find any engineering drawings or designs of the original.

    Does anyone have any suggestions of where he should look, or who he should contact?

    John - see if there is a historic society in the area where they were built - someone may have knowledge of some engineering diagrams tucked away in someone's private collection.

    Also, on this side of the pond, the government keeps an extensive archive of important (and not so important) pictures, maps, records, recordings, . . .

    Thanks Ironhead, good point. As I remember, the boiler was patented, so the Patent Office should have a record.
