Cut-away views of locos?
Does anyone have, or know of books (or other media) that have cut-away views of locos?
Maybe something in this direction:
This next one is not as good, but may work...
Looking for more of a drawing than blueprint - sorta like this, but for locomotives

I've seen them in the "general" type railroad books you can find at borders barnes and noble and such.
But that jet, thats a turbojet...I really need to stop dealing with airplanes for a while...aka, I need a vacation.

One of your best bets is an old magazine dealer. tho locomotive builders used to put cutaways in their ads. Popular Science, Popular Mechanics, Trains magazine or some old employee magazines would be other places to find the images. The World's Fairs were a place that the manufacturers used to promote their new locomotives. There will be fewer drawings past the 60's as the technology was not new anymore.Cheap and Nothing Wasted

Some advanced (but conventional in configuration) never-built steam designs:
FRENCH COMPOUND LOCOMOTIVES' HOMEPAGE - Chapelon's planned engines drawings
Unusual steam locomotives - many have cross-sections:
For example, here's a steam turbine:
