It's not in the Elco plan set, you can grab them on Dick's web site here: http://www.pt103.gdinc.com/drawings/21inchAWTorpedoTubeMark18.zip. A big thanks to Dr. Al Ross for sourcing and sharing them! I'll take some credit also for scanning scaling straightening and stitching them together.

Be aware of some minor changes in the different Mods included in the set.

Thanks Jeff, and always a big thanks to Al Ross. New guys like me would be nowhere without all much valued expertise provided here.

Jeff D , Dave, Ted or one of the other experts here Forward torpedo tracks 2 sizes/shapes, which one goes with the forward tubes and which goes with the Aft tubes ??? I’ must be looking at the plans wrong, or I simple missed it. Again your help is needed and valued
Mike

I'm not quite sure what you're asking, what drawing are you referencing? One of the Elco or one of the tube drawings? This is from Elco drawing ELCO_Roll_5535-2_72SCAN_00610.pdf / ELCO_Roll_5535-2_72SCAN_00611.pdf and may answer your question. I notice that the aft tubes have longer tracks and a longer train out:
