"One caveat: while prolific, the plans in Mainline Modeler are generally good, but almost always suspect in some way. It's OK to use them as a general guide for modeling work, but! never be afraid to print out a few hardcopies and start marking them up based on a lengthy examination of prototype photos."

This is a supremely important point - at least three manufacturers (Gould, Ertl, Branchline) learned this sad fact the hard way. Hundman completely ignored redlines on drawings that accompanied one of my articles (the errors were pretty egregious), and the drawing that was published is a trap fro the unwary.
