This blueprint shows one of the designs that Whitall Tatum was considering as they were developing their transposition insulator in the mid 1930's. If you look closely at the left side (bottom) of the drawing, you can see a red contour line drawn over the original. This red line appears similar, while clearly not identical, to a CD 200 design.
