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.



The DC SD70 series (including the SD70M and SD75I) was always an early arrival in previous scales: It was among the first "tiny trains" I drew in 1999, and it appeared in the second year of the 1:55 series (2001), the first year of the redrawn 1:55 series (2005) and the second year of the 1:36 series (2009).

But 1:18 was the exception - and today the first SD75I variations finally arrived almost 10 years into the series. I had actually started on the SD75I before the SD70MAC, which arrived in late 2020; I drew them partly in parallel but then focused on finishing the SD70MAC since it was much less well-represented in earlier scales.


The thing about having a website for many years is that you sometimes lose track of lingering old pages or bits of outdated code - long forgotten amid more recent updates.

Case in point: The 1:36 "Road vehicles, Lineside Structures and Equipment" listed under "Other Images" below. I discovered that those drawings (formerly split in two pages) were still using the page template from many years ago - and hence the pages had a complete lack of page styles and colours! I've updated them to the current format - and in the process combined them (as well as the 1:28 and 1:14 drawings) into two pages instead of four.

Another code-related update: A long-overdue switch from http to https.

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
