Philip Duclos's plans are in several published books. The one my wife bought for me last Christmas was "Two Shop Masters"

http://www.yesteryeartoys.com/cgi-local/bookcatalog.cfm?view=45-T3609

It has full plans and construction notes for several of his engines including the victorian, the gearless hit and miss, the odds and ends, the little blazer, ...

I really like the book but I didn't find the Frank McLean section all that useful.

Chuck
I'm just finishing up a somewhat modified version of the Victorian and can recommend it to experienced builders. It's been a fun build. The 2 Duclos books are a righteously solid investment. I'd be for acquiring the pair of them, if at all possible. I also see them on Ebay from time to time.
