Steamed Saturday


The image you see above is from LES 24 HEURES DE CHOO CHOO, by Stan Mott, originally printed in Road and Track magazine. The entire cartoon, along with the story of how it came to be from the man himself, can be found over at Dean’s Garage. These illustrations also inspired some fellows over at Digital Light Studios, including creator Andrew Ledenev, to make a video animation of a steam race, with much the same feeling and vibe of Stan Mott’s art. Hit the jump and check it out!

    I don't even know what to write. This captured my essence. It also reminded me a lot of Railsea by China Miéville. Has anyone else read it?

      I haven't read this, but now I want to!! Sounds like an entertaining premise. (I found an NPR review, figured that would be relatively spoiler safe)

    You can't talk about railroad racing without mentioning All American Hero, Tom Slick:

    You know what the spotter was saying over the radio?

    "Trouble ahead, trouble behind."
