Found this really nice image for day 1009 of a tube train emerging from one of the many tunnels that make up the network. Love how tight a fit the tunnel is and can only assume that either they didn’t have such stringent health and safety measures back then or the trains have grown over time. Either way if it made a lovely looking and fun sketch which came out well (interestingly enough my favourite part I think is the cabling down the side of the tunnel).

Till next time!

Another sketch from a photo taken at Yeovil, this time looking at a turntable display that they put on using a small Diesel engine and some carriages. Quite a nice little demonstration on a turntable that has seen the Flying Scotsman turn around on it as well. Anyway a nice little sketch to show off the demonstration.

Till next time!

More trains this time with a  side by side comparison of some old and some newer London underground stock (old on the right and new on the left). Love the size different between the two of them hence the choice of subject for the sketch. Also liked how it came out despite it looking a bit faded in places.

Till next time!

Another train sketch with another request this time for a Arrive Wales Class 158. One of the few trains that I’ve sketched that I’ve actually been on (though admittedly in South West Trains livery) as they run on the local train line to London.  Another train sketch that I’m pretty happy with as well!

Till next time!

So, to start off the next 1000 sketches we have, surprisingly enough, a train sketch. This time this American locomotive which was another request on a discord channel I’m a member of. Love the look of these engines and really liked how the sketch came out even though I do wish it was easier to see what was on the nose of the train as it came out a bit busy in that area. Still, definitely one of the better locomotive sketches I have on here and a good way to start off the next 1000!

Till next time!

Back to the trains with another request form the discord server, this time this Pacer DMU. Basically a bus on the railway  tracks for anyone who doesn’t know what a Pacer is. Never been on one in real life but I hear they can be quite bumpy. Anyway, another little sketch that I quite like the outcome of and the person requesting it was happy!

Till next time!

When it comes to trains I have a bit of a soft spot for all the small shunting engiens that can be found working in the freight yards, moving trucks and carriages around and forming the trains up for the bigger locos to haul away so enjoyed doing this small sketch of one pushing some wagons up a track!

Till next time!

Did this sketch of this train while on a bit of a Japanese binge having just watched a fair few of the Japanology series on youtube and found this lovely little photo of a Japanese Metro train to sketch with a nice wall backdrop, liking how it came out!

Till next time!

Day 982: Waiting at St Pancras (Pre Eurostar)

Reference image: I’ve unfortunately forgot to actually save this reference image.

Another sketch of some trains this time several (what I think are Voyagers) Waiting at St Pancras before it became an international station serving Eurostar. Bit of a weird crop on the sketch but I didn’t really know what I wanted to focus on so just cropped it like this and think it came out quite nicely!

Till next time!
