Transport Heritage Expo

In Transport Heritage Expo, children and adults got excited to the locomotions at Central Station! We all love steam and choo choo trains. On 26 September 1855, the first passenger railway line opened from Sydney to Parramatta in NSW. In the event, the steam engine operated between Central and Hurstville in 60 minutes for return. All the passengers, young and old looked so happy. I waved at them all. 
Children and family often came to me and enjoyed a chat. They delightedly took a photo with this work -- that made me very happy.   
Special thanks for all the event staff who handled so many people and assisted people with disability. It was beautiful to see an event crew friendly leading children into a locomotion and another crew assisting people with impairment in eye sight. No accident, no injury! Cleaners did a great job. The team appreciated my feedback and we've become friends! Wooo, hooo!    
I will develop watercolour paintings from these sketches. Steam and washes are very interesting. I want to put colours on the black and white below. 
It was nice to relax myself after the illustrations. Now, I will move onto other projects and commissioned work.  
Friends, Happy Painting! Have a creative week! 



  1. Dear Sadami these are excellent illustrations of the train. Your little girl in the second smiling gives one the feel of that special expo. Hope you are having a great week. Hugs!

    1. Dear Debbie, Thank you for kind comments. Tears up for your father's news and I prayed. I know your pain. Take your time as much as you like. No doubt your father is always with/in you. Best wishes, hugs, Sadami

  2. Sadami, your trains are fabulous. Sounds like everyone had a great time too. Enjoy your day!

    1. Thank you very much, sweet Carol! You, too, have a wonderful week and enjoy your life. Best wishes, Sadami

  3. How wonderful! There was an old steam train which ran through out town, very rarely, when I was a child. I remember when the steam whistle blew, my father would get in his car and drive to the train tracks to see it - I think I have that inbred love of steam trains and have only been on 2 trains in my life (once in Australia!)

    1. Thank u, sweet Rhonda! Certainly, your deep love of steam engines are from a happy childhood memory. In "Little House on the Prairie," or "Little House on Rocky Ridge," Mama told children Mr Edward raced a steam train and won = got bet! What a peaceful time that a train was not so fast! Come to Sydney. I'll take you to that event. Best wishes, Sadami

  4. Me gustan mucho esos trenes antiguos y los has dibujado maravillosamente. Te felicito!
    Por qué eran tan bellas esas viejas máquinas? Lo serán en el futuro las de hoy día?
    No lo sé, pero dibujadas y pintadas son muy hermosas.
    Un abrazo Sadami

    1. Muchas gracias, Joshemari, por la amable reacción y aliento. Sí, los viejos trenes son muy hermosos. Espero que los niños también los disfruten en el futuro.
      Mis mejores deseos, Sadami

      Thank you very much, Joshemari, for kind feedback and encouragements. Yes, the old trains are very beautiful. I hope children will enjoy them in the future, too.
      Best wishes, Sadami

      I really like those old trains and you've drawn them beautifully. I congratulate you!
      Why were these old machines so beautiful? Will they be in the future today?
      I do not know, but sketches and painted are very beautiful.
      A hug sadami
