A drawing of the E-4 Steamliner is on display in my blog.

I cannot vouch for the accuracy of this info (from a Stephenson Index) since I myself do not have the issues referred to, but evidently Railroad Model Craftsman has run plans of the C&NW's 4-6-4 three times: Nov. 1940; July 1962; and March 1959.

Be aware that it took RMC a long while to catch up to the quality of scale drawings that Model Railroader became known for.  Even into the 1960s some of their scale drawings were pretty basic.
