Re: Book of historical drawings; is it worth scanning?

If the volume in question is this one…

Drawings of the standards and recommended practice of the Master Car Builders Association  Henry O. Shepard Co. Press Chicago 1918

It is already available online at HathiTrust.  Here is a link:

This one has the MCM-26B samples of the Standard Letters and Figures for Freight Car Marking…. Showing the M, C, B, 2, 7, 8 in 9”, 7”, 4” , 3”, 2” and 1” sizes.


If it is different it is certainly worth scanning.
