The above titled report is dated December 28, 1959. This unpublished report works through some of the initial ideas for the TC-497 Overland Train MkII. Discussion includes engine choices, decisions that led to the Solar turbines, and much more. The report also includes specifications and engineering drawings for suspension, heating system, electrical diagrams, and others. I have unfolded all of the large format papers and will have them scanned for future historians.
