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.



Sometimes I have in-progress drawings sitting for several years before I finally get around to finishing them. That wasn't the case with the most recent additions!

Last week's Gunderson 6269 cu-ft boxcars were fast enough, taking 6 days from the first steps to the finished drawings (with a lot of that time devoted to finding reference images). But perhaps setting a record for the fastest all-new 1:18 drawings are today's NSC 3675 cu-ft gondolas, which were in progress for only 2 days. A big reason is that I've now drawn many common freight car parts and details, which means I can assemble new drawings almost like Lego.

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
