(Johnston, c.1950s-70s) A set of (6) blueprints and one original blueprint drawing for Disney Legend Ollie Johnston's personal backyard railroad. Johnston is known as one of Walt Disney's Nine Old Men and worked as an animator on countless Disney productions. Johnston was also an avid fan of trains, and much like Walt Disney, operated several miniature steam engines he had built for his backyard railroad. These blueprints offer a unique glimpse into the components of his Shay engine, which Johnston built himself, as well as a later model. Johnston hand-drew the side-view image of the train in pencil, and the bottom right is stamped "From the estate of Ollie Johnston". The blueprints range in size from approximately 17.25"x22.25" to 22"x34.25" and are in fair to good condition overall, with some tearing along the top edge of the original drawing and slight wrinkling to the sheets. Several of the blueprints show discoloration and wear from use.
