locked [Southern Railway] Peachtree Station Drawings

John M. Ware, P.E.


  Specifically what are you trying to accomplish with the Brookwood station drawings? A re constructed set of original drawings? Organized arrangement of existing drawings or composite  of Floor Plans and Building Elevations? Sections?

  Is the existing information only on micro-film not paper?

There is an extensive set of microfilm, now scanned, drawings of Brookwood (Peachtree) Station in Atlanta in the SRHA archives. All are partial views of the architect’s plans in the very detailed style of the period when buildings incorporated significant stone work. (One example is attached.)


There is also a good size file on the planning, construction and opening of the station, conceived to be an Atlanta station stop that would not require trains to go to and from Atlanta Term Station from Howells.


Even without a potential TIES article, reconstructed, even re-drawn, drawings would be a valuable addition to the archives. If anyone is interested in helping, or has an idea that may be useful, please contact SRHA at archives@....
