There seem to be no published plans for South Park coach-baggage car #1 prior to its becoming C&S #122. The John Maxwell Collection offers a floor plan and side elevation of it then, both with and without end platforms. It is their plan C-003. Note that this plans says the car was built in 1880 by the South Park.  This is based on apparently incorrect information found in the C&S passenger car diagram. (It is possible it was re-built at that time, having then seen six years of very heavy service.) An article in the October/November 1999 issue of FineScale Railroader reportedly contains plans for C&S #22.
