Scale Train Drawings

Title Image

Welcome to the Trainiax drawings page! This is a collection of drawings that I have been working on since late 2000.



I'm still here! As has become the norm for summer in recent years, most train-related activity has been on hiatus as I've resumed as seasonal outdoor work (and cycling). However, I recently received a huge batch of reference files (forwarded by Jones Rana) that include many ALCO mechanical diagrams, which will be immensely useful in future drawings. For the moment, I haven't started anything new, but I have made a number of revisions to my existing ALCO RS-11 and RS-36 drawings.

As it turns out, my MLW RS-18 measurements (from which the dimensions were derived) were almost all accurate - except for the overall for-aft position of the cab and hood components, which is the main change. The MLW RS-10 and RS-18 will be receiving similar revisions.

About the Drawings


My drawings would not be possible without the extensive contributions from many site viewers sharing photos, diagrams, phase details or corrections, and I am very belatedly publicly sharing my gratitude to those who have helped. (If you've sent me stuff and you're not on the list, please remind me!)

A special thank-you to
