"E" (Engineering) Type Plans

Part Three

Various Sizes
Original Shipyard Plans/Machinery Plans

Price: As Marked Plus Shipping

I spent two full days at a very musty, humid paper trader's yard in August of 2005 sorting through mountains of paperwork to secure these one-of-a-kind original builder's plans from the RMS WINDSOR CASTLE. If I had not "rescued" these, they would have been sold to the local pulp processing plant and converted into newsprint stock. I bought nearly a ton of plans and paperwork from the ship, which was a virtual floating museum.

Unfortunately, seeing that a "westerner" wanted the plans, the trader upped the price by a thousand percent, making this an extraordinarily costly investment.

I have saved one copy of each of the original plans for my archives in the hope that one day they will be preserved for future historians. In the meantime, the copies of all my spares will be added to this site and sold to recoup the huge expenses incurred. These are fascinating, detailed plans that give insight to just how complex the process of building and engineering a great Union Caste Liner was. In the pre-computer era, these were rendered by hand with remarkable skill and precision. They were on the ship throughout her career, only to be removed once she reached Alang on that sad day in 2005.

I will try my best to note the condition of each plan. Please understand these were in use for over three decades and sat for another decade. Some are torn, some are stained, some have small missing bits and all smell like the engine room of a 1960-built British ocean liner!

There are so many plans in this set, showing a photo of each would not only be impractical but would fill up several pages. In the interest of sanity, I am going to list them in numeric order with a description of condition and price. If you have any specific questions about these, please feel free to e-mail me and I will do my best to provide more details.
