While I'm not as knowledgeable with Titan I as I am with Titan II, I do know of a great site that has exactly what you are looking for.

http://www.chromehooves.net/Titan_Epitaph_main.htm

The site is styled in a way similar to siloworld, but focuses on a single Titan I site. The webmaster was a caretaker at this particular site and managed to capture it very well on film. He's done a great job tracking down original photos and piecing together a very detailed overview of a Titan I complex. He was also very lucky to discover about 5000 pages of Technical Order publications in the powerhouse. If you're looking for something along the lines of blueprints or the T.O. -1, it's under the downloads section on siloworld.

Now if you're looking for stuff related to Titan II, I can set you up there. If you PM me or put up a post under the Titan II section, I'd be more than happy to send over some of the photos and slides I have.
