The Maryland code was basically written by CALS and adapted by the state of MD back in the late 80' or early 90's. I think that some other clubs have also adapted the same basic code.

Try Blackgates Engineering in the UK http://www.blackgates.co.uk/ Download the catalog. I bought the drawings and wheels to make the slate wagon.

The Chesapeake & Allegheny Live Steamers in Baltimore http://calslivesteam.org/ made a router table to mill out the slots for tie plates. It uses two routers controlled by a foot switch and a frame that holds 10 ties which are then dragged over the router bits to mill out the slots. I'll try to get ...
