    I wanted to know if anyone has any ideas where I could find the details needed for the inside of modern diesel engines and such the diesel or electric engines? I was thinking of modeling a wrecked engine and wanted to have the inner parts showing. I was thinking I may be able to find a diesel engine from a model semi truck but don’t know if it will be convincing scale. Nor do I want to buy a model truck just for the small part.

    The March 2008 issue of Railfan & Railroad has drawings of the inside of the Metra and Caltrain variations on the MP36.
