Train Pencil Carving in Progress

Three-Rivers-Line-No6-ANGLEDI’m putting on the finishing touches of a new series of ‘train pencils‘.  In the meantime, I thought that I would show you some of the in progress photos I’ve taken along the way.

As I’ve stated before, I don’t carve the trains and the tracks directly out of the pencil in one shot.  This would just be impossible and frustrating – as one chip after hours of carving can cause me to start over.  I carve the engines separately and then mount them on the rails (pencil leads) and carve the later trestles and cars from the pencil.

So here are some photos showing the engines as they’re carved.

You can see more my ‘completed’ pencil carvings here.
