STEP 1. In order to draw a train, you are going to have to draw out the body of the train as you see here. Start with a skinny rectangular shape and then add the vertical lines on the top of the train like you see here. Next draw a box shape at the end of the train and then another small boxy shape at the front of the train.   STEP 2. You will start sketching in front design parts of the trains structure the way you see it here. The front parts are called the cowcatcher, cylinder, and then the head lamp. Of course there is more joints and such to make the front of the train complete.   STEP 3. Now start sketching out the chimney, smoke-box, and boiler system as you see it done for you here and then also sketch out the gadgets that connect them all together.   STEP 4. You will continue to draw out the design of the train starting with a cylinder shape right after the chimney spout called the dome. Next sketch out the wheels of the truck and attachments like the connecting rods and valvegear. Once this is done you can start on your next drawing step.   STEP 5. Sketch out the second dome and then the trains whistle. You will also need to draw more train wheels, rods, and more valve gears.   STEP 6.
