Now draw a few lines to the vanishing point as I did.
Now draw a line from the top and from the bottom of the circle to the vanishing point to make a cylinder shape.
Close off the cylinder by drawing a second, smaller circle, like I did. Then erase the parts of the circle that you don’t need. Also draw a vase type shape at the bottom of the circle.
Now draw 2 vertical lines at the top of the bigger cylinder. Now draw a line from the center-bottom of the vase type shape to the bottom point of the triangle at the front of the train.
Now draw the top of the stack (cylinder). Draw a curved line to close the cylinder that you just drew and then draw 2 outward pointed diagonal lines with and connect it to a larger curved line.
Now draw a bunch of oval wheels that get smaller as they get farther away (except for the 2nd wheel).
See the horizon line behind everything (green)…draw a curved line from the vertical lines that hit the green horizon line ( as seen above).
Now draw cylinders at either side of the vase-like shape (draw a circle and then draw lines to the vanishing point…then draw a smaller circle in the back and erase the lines that you don’t need … reference steps #12 – #14)
Step 20 – Finished Drawing of a Locomotive Train 1-Point Perspective Lesson
Erase the lines that you don’t need and darken the ‘right’ lines. Make things look less like they were drawn with a ruler by giving the drawing some flavor and personality.

Wow! You are a great teacher! I needed this for a gift for a little boy who loves trains and was so well mannered at a recent bible study. I drew this on a rock for him with his name and would have never been able to do this without your directions! Thank you so much!
Wow! I’m using this for a technical drawing class I’m taking right now, and this helped me a lot!

This is one of the best websites I have encountered. I am a very creative person. I have been sharing and selling my artistic skills, but I seemed to be lost when it comes to charging and building a career or business. Your website is what I have been seeking. I am so glad that I found you. I will certainly share this site with my friends and associates.
