Life on the Tracks 1 by KendallCollins Life on the Tracks 1 by KendallCollins
THIS IS IT!!!!!!!! The first comic based on my idea for cartoon trains. The series that was mention in this:… has finally arrived!!! This is actually based on this request:… since it got some people wanting a picture like this, but....

I decided to make a OC (loosely)based on :icontomredlion: since he has a gallery of GP30s on his DA account:… , and I felt that something like that kind of locomotive would make the series a bit more unique than Thomas the Tank Engine since most of my locomotives would be from a later period and have more modern appearance (while having older steam engines for fun.) 

To the comic and it's joke, it's mostly how anyone can be a drama llama (I used "drama king" because it was funny in Shrek 2). In decided what extras to put in the background, I used the locomotive from the Harold Lloyd clip when he drives his Model T Ford on the flatcar of a freight… and a Southern Pacific P10:… to make my cast more interesting (I think the look on the P10 is the funniest part of the comic.) Despite seeing a gallery full of GP30 units, I used a model of Union Pacific version just get some of the details but went back to get the BN livery that :icontomredlion: requested.

Hmm...oh, Tom was originally a BN diesel?  Well shucks, that means he's NOT headed for my home excursion railroad.  That line recently bought an ex-Santa Fe GP30.  The steamers are probably saying though 'Treat us with RESPECT and we'll try to get you preserved instead of scrapped!'
