I bet you didn’t think you’d see another CK Holliday build update! There’s so much going now on this blog between the virtual build, the simulator, and the Haunted Mansion. But, I thought I’d go ahead and post some pictures to show what I have so far for the long-waited Holliday tender.
There are just four steel beams supporting the tender “tank” above. Can you tell which end is the front? Yes, there’s a difference!
The trucks are detailed with their springs and pockets and saddles.
And of course the “Disneyland Railroad” and “Lovsted, Seattle” stamping!
I know some of you are really eager to get the Haunted Mansion architectural set. That’s not done yet, but I decided to release a version of it for free!
This drawing is something I made a long time ago with intention of releasing for free, but I guess I never got around to it. Well, here it is. It shows three elevations visible to the public in good details. I admit that it does lack decorative railing details, which is something that the full mansion architectural set won’t.
This “lithograph”-style drawing has a dark background and a subtle “wandering” and fading “hand-drawn” look to the lines, evoking the famous Mark Davis drawing of the original facade.
To download a full size copy, just click the picture below and save it to your computer. Again, the drawing is provided free and you may distribute, modify, or use it in your project. But you absolutely may not make money from it, or use it to make money in any way.
Also, note that the titleblock on this drawing says “Balboa Observatory”. This is just for me to avoid saying “Disneyland’s Haunted Mansion”.
