North Western Railway Engines by TheCaptainofDerp North Western Railway Engines by TheCaptainofDerp
For my fellow railway whores, drawfriends and Thomasfans, here is a drawing I completed in late 2010 but never uploaded. This shot includes some of the main engines of the North Western Railway from the Railway Series books and television series "Thomas and Friends", drawn by me to be as prototypically accurate as possible.

Included are:

Thomas the Tank Engine (#1)
Edward the Blue Engine (#2)
Henry the Green Engine (#3)
Gordon the Big Engine (#4)
James the Red Engine (#5)
Percy the Small Engine (#6)
Toby the Tram Engine (#7)
Duck the Great Western Engine (#8)
Donald the Scottish Twin Engine (#9)
Douglas the Scottish Twin Engine (#10)
Oliver the Western Engine (#11)
Emily the Beautiful Engine (#12)
Bill the Tank Engine Twin (SCC 1)
Ben the Tank Engine Twin (SCC 2)

Now this is the order, that I wanted the new Steam Team to be, but thanks to HIT, Duck, Donald, Douglas, Oliver, Bill & Ben have been left out of the team until (except for so far Donald & Douglas) Duck, Oliver, Bill & Ben have return to the series but still are not on the main character roles like I wanted them to be.

nice to see emily with a proper number! although the austerity engine was probably going to be number twelve.

I had nothing to work off of with the Austerity Engine. Otherwise I would have onsidered it. Thank you though.

Gah. I've eyed this piece a few times and I finally need to comment. This is so beautiful to me. I just adore the vintage aesthetic you’ve portrayed-- it’s as if I’m looking at a real railway poster from decades ago. Given a series that today has largely forgotten what a “railway” is, it’s so refreshing to see a fan reach back to its roots and recall a more sensible time. How could Rev. Awdry himself not have loved this-- your characters even look like his models! ^^

I’d love to hang this up in my train room. (Emily, perhaps, withstanding. XD)

Thank you, Atticus! I'm glad to see a fellow fan appreciates them to such a level. :)
