Good morning all,

Im not sure if this is okay to post or request, especially for a first post on the forum, but I am looking for parts and/or drawings for MPI part number 2085867. The parts manual lists it as "STEP ASSEMBLY, Cab man door". I have tried searching online and have sent messages to some rebuilders and Wabtec, but haven't yet heard back from anyone. Could anyone point me in a good direction for finding replacement parts, other part numbers, and/or drawings for this (or really any parts), or in the direction of other resources for these types of things? Thank you all in advance

Based on the diagrams shown in the MP36 Operators and Maintenance Manuals I have PDF copies of, it looks like all three sets of steps (one on the right side to the cab, one on the left side to the cab, and one on the left side to the engine compartment) are the same. They also look to be identical to the ones on the other MPXpress models. The drawings in the manuals are all vector-based, so while they don't have dimensions on the steps themselves, it might be possible to estimate them based on other known dimensions of items in the drawings.

I'm attaching a couple of general arrangement drawings I have for the MP40 (that came from public online sources) that might be useful since those steps look to be the same and the drawings are at a higher resolution than the ones in the MP36 manuals.
