What do you mean by "live diesel drawing"?

 

Do you mean locomotives with a real diesel engine? Those are rare although we have covered some in Garden Rail in the past but the builders didn't work from, or produce, drawings.

Diesel, as in real diesel, compression-ignition, is exceedingly, hugely challenging at that scale, and even spark or hot tube engines are challenging, both for reasons of physics.

 

Be interested to see what comes to light.

It's not something we've covered in Garden Rail, but I think something has appeared in Engineering in Miniature (Sept 2017 - https://www.world-of-railways.co.uk/store/back-issues/engineering-in-miniature/engineering-in-miniature-september-2017)  in the past. No drawing though, these tend to be developed as one off models.
