Computer Art Gallery

Computer aided drawings (CAD) are now widely available as prints suitable for framing on the walls of a den or train room. Some are meant to be artistic renderings, in the sense of fine art. Others are intended as the equivalent of scale drawings, suitable for modeling purposes. Both types are shown here. The DSP&P Mason Bogies have been favorite topics and the DSP&P Moguls and Consolodations have also been done.

The images here are from various websites and are for my personal use. They have been reduced in size to protect the artists' original materials.

Bill Gould's "Solidworks" 3-D Art


Most paintings show the DSP&P after the re-numbering of 1885. The CAD drawing above is by
William Gould showing DSP&P 2-6-6T Mason Bogie #6 "Tenmile" before the change to "plain-jane" black.


Bill offers four art prints (all are nicely framed on my office walls). and complete blackline plans for this locomotive at 1:20.3 and 1:24 scale from his website
. The 1:24 plans complement the 1:24 scale Delton #15 "Brekenridge" and the 1:20.3 version would match the 1:20.3 scale Accucraft "Tenmile".


This is another of
William Gould's dramatic CAD art prints, with DSP&P "Tenmile" and a waycar, from the cover of Mar/Apr 2014 Narrow Gauge and Shortline Gazwtte. You could mimic this scene with the Accucraft versions in 1:20.3 scale.

Jim Wilkie's CAD Drawings
The four illustrations below are renderings by Jim Wilke, a well known locomotive historian, showing the ornate striping and lettering on early DSP&P Mason Bogies. The colours are his interpretation of "what could have been" and are widely regarded as the most likely liveries, although drawings by others have been rendered with some significantly differences.
