How to draw a steam train

Step 1

Mark off the width and height of the steam train. Draw an oval for a smoke box door on the right part of the sheet and a guideline for it. With a straight line, mark the direction of the train.

Step 2

Draw the roof and the body bottom. Add a guideline for a chimney.

Step 3

Outline the cabin, windows, and chimney. Mark with a line a cowcatcher size.

Delineate ovals to show the shape of the chimney, and its hole. Add an oval for the rear part of the steam train body. Define the place for a kerf.

Step 5

Draw a footboard, a cabin base, window frames and a cylinder. Add a short line to define the cowcatcher proportions.

Step 6

Delineate the front windows and the cowcatcher shapes. Add more lines to indicate the roof and chimney. Mark with a line a row of wheels.

Step 7

Draw ovals for wheels and a headlight. Add some details and pipes.

Step 8

Outline the shapes of the wheels, the bottom of the steam train, and the headlight. Show the front parts and components.
