This is why the railroads would often disassemble new parts bought from outside suppliers and put the drafting room employees to work.

Norfolk and Western Historical Society's (https://www.nwhs.org/archivesdb/) collection has many drawings for these proprietary internal replacement parts. It is relatively easy to search their archive, their copy prices are reasonable, and they respond quickly.
