Andy Fletcher is a railroad artist, speaker and an advocate for trains and railroads. Over the last twenty-seven years, Andy has drawn over 3,000 locomotives, freight cars, passenger cars and cabooses of North America's railroads. Andy began drawing trains while he was still in school.  Through the years, railroads and museums across America have commissioned Andy to draw their equipment.  At the age of 18, Andy was asked by Burlington Northern to design their Executive SD70MAC paint scheme.  In 2012, Andy designed the Norfolk Southern Heritage locomotives.  In 2015 the National Historic Landmark, St. Louis Union Station Hotel, used his drawings of passenger trains that served St. Louis, to decorate their rooms and suites. Recently GATX had him draw  their leaser locomotives and rolling stock for their 2018 Holiday Card. 

You can read PDFs of Andy's other books and books  with Andy's railroad drawings.
