The newer and sleeker trains are a lot of fun to draw, and still start with simple shapes. You could get inspired by the familiar Amtrak cars, or even the high-speed trains that are found in other countries.

TIP: Take advantage of space you’ll have above and below in your train drawing. Adding some larger landscaping in the foreground, and smaller in the background, will add some depth and space to your artwork.
