Welcome to the 20th century.

WELCOME to DieselPunkMachine, accepting art related to Dieselpunk!

What is Dieselpunk?

Dieselpunk is the recently-coined name for a subgenre that has existed for decades. Named for the engine that gave us the modern automobile, airplane, navy and war vehicle, dieselpunk represents the aesthetic of the two World Wars, the interbellum period and the immediate post-war period. Dieselpunk combines the artistic and literary influences of the early 20th century (including pulp magazines, Art Deco, serial films, film noir, radio dramas, wartime pin-ups and contemporary art) with postmodern technology and sensibilities. Where steampunk ends, dieselpunk begins!

- Diesel-related images (noir, pulp, art deco, Roaring '20s, World War-related) may be accepted if they have the right postmodern sensibility and craft.

- Vintage photos, scans, and photos of historical objects aren't dieselpunk per se, but they're of interest, so they should be sorted into the 'Related' category.

- Raygun Gothic / Fallout / 1950s sci-fi / "atompunk" isn't really dieselpunk, but it is related. Art of this style will be accepted and sorted into its own folder.

DieselPunk Stories and Lit
The Rutsville Incident PT1The horizon bled like a fresh wound with the light of the setting sun. The chill of autumn was a herald of the winter to come and, far below in the mountains and valleys of Montana, the trees were steeling themselves for the winter. The sound of their plane’s engines reverberated as they followed the railroad tracks. From so high up the whole thing looked like a model train set to Captain James Sphinx.The freelance pilot and his cohorts Tex and Webster were grateful for any job they could snatch up. Usually, they found themselves in more exotic locales battling airpirates and warlords. But a job was a job and planes had expenses. It was a simple job, follow the tracks report any potential hazards, but more importantly they were to ensure a freight train with precious cargo reached its destination. Much to Sphinx’s chagrin there had been a mix up of schedules and now he and his Misfit Squadron were hot on the trail of the train instead of flying escort. Thankfully it was easy to follow from the plumes of smoke far ahead.If Sphinx had lost a train, he thought to himself, he might as well retire.Webster’s posh voice crackled over the radio. “I say, terrible form back there. You would think they would give us the proper schedule.”“I think those railroad folk are just paranoid,” Tex’s voice drawled. “Hasn’t been a train heist since the Old West.”Sphinx spoke next. “Maybe they’re paranoid, but I definitely didn’t appreciate the mix in schedules. If I didn’t know any better….”A thought came to the pilot as he noticed they were catching up to the smoke in the distance. Was it honestly a mix-up to give the escorts an incorrect schedule? Sphinx gave his orders.“Throttle up Misfits. I think there’s something amiss.”The three biplanes, each of them a nimble P6 Hawk roared forward. Sphinx gazed down as the trees by the tracks gave way to an expansive field. There the train laid still, and a large aircraft was idling beside the iron monster. Sphinx squinted as he saw figures loading bags onto the bomber. It was an older twin engine biplane: a surplus Martin that seemed to be converted into a cargo plane.“I doubt that’s an airmail transfer,” Sphinx spoke.“Son of a-” Tex growled. “It is a heist!”If the Misfits needed any further proof as to what was going on below there was a muzzleflash from a firearm. The pilots expertly maneuvered away from the haphazard attempt to shoot them down. The lumbering plane below began to take off.In the midst of the action, Sphinx had to admit the plan was a feat of ingenuity. In the hard times that the depression had brought, money was hard to find. Often people turned to crime out of desperation, but if these robbers had access to an aircraft, then they probably weren’t that desperate. The Misfits circled back around, intent on stopping the plane before it could gain altitude. Webster was first to jockey into position. Just as he was lining up with the bomber-turned-cargo plane, Tex shouted a warning into the radio.“Break left! NOW!”Webster didn’t hesitate or question the statement as he jerked the control yoke. His plane tilted to the left just as tracers zipped past where he had just been. Another plane had joined the fray. Sphinx glanced up to see a pursuit plane of some sort in the twilight sky. Looked to be surplus from The Great War.“I’ll take care of this crumb. Keep after the bomber!” Sphinx ordered.The bomber loaded with the stolen goods had taken to the sky. The goons within it had somehow attached Lewis guns at the rear and front of the aircraft and the muzzles flashed as the gunmen fired wildly.Sphinx and the enemy pursuit plane were in a turning battle, the craft circling one another each trying to get into a good position to fire. Sphinx found himself closing in on his target, his craft far better in the turn than his opponent. Sphinx frowned as the plane filled his gunsights and he squeezed a burst that tore part of the top wing off of the enemy.The older plane plummeted to the ground where it met the Earth in a bright explosion.“You may have known how to fly, but you sure didn’t know how to dogfight,” Sphinx muttered darkly.He reorientated himself and spied the distant flames of machineguns in the fading light. Seemed the rest of The Misfits were still trying to bring the bomber down. It was a tall order: the stolen goods - most likely money - wasn’t likely to survive a fiery crash. The gunners on the plane were firing desperately at the Misfits as the pilot of the dark-colored bomber tried to lose them.But the plane was slow and despite the erratic maneuvers it just couldn’t shake the pursuers. Tex pitched his plane up to gain altitude as Webster and Sphinx fired - Not aiming at the bomber but merely trying to keep its crew distracted. It served its purpose as Tex made a diving attack, his bullets slamming into the engine cowling of one of the bomber’s engines. There was a burst of flame and oily dark smoke belched from the enemy’s engine: The pilot had the good sense to cut fuel to the engine at least.The stricken bomber was lumbering even more. The rear gunner was firing away still as Sphinx rolled and fired a burst in return. The rear gun fell silent. Webster took the initiative to fire on the second engine. The bomber pitched down and then up as the pilot tried to make a controlled descent.This was the best outcome they could hope for: now they just had to hope the whole damn aircraft didn’t explode or catch fire on the way down. The many trees jutted up as the bomber fell to the surface. The Misfits circled ahead like vultures as they tried to track the plane’s descent but in the low light conditions this proved a challenge.There was no flash of flame from an explosion, and if there was smoke none of the pilots could see. They broke off their pursuit. Sphinx tried his radio but was met with a burst of static. Waggling his plane’s wings, he caught his wingmen’s attention and the three broke off their circling, flying over a town surrounded by trees with a few lights burning below them - Probably a logging community. Most curious was a large radio antenna fixed on a hill. The three planes flew on before spying a clearing in the pale moonlight and making their descent.As The Misfit Squadron descended onto the moonlit clearing, they knew that their mission was far from over. Their primary objective had been achieved: the cargo plane was grounded, its stolen goods likely safe from destruction. However, they knew danger still lurked in the darkness.The three pilots exited their planes, Sphinx was first to climb out, pulling his leather flying helm off and revealing his sandy brown hair in the dim light. His face was boyish, but his eyes held an intensity to them, his frame was tall, thin, and lanky.He was quickly joined by Webster, his ever-unlit pipe between his chapped lips as he twirled the end of his auburn-colored mustache. Tex had his arms folded, his shoulders broad and hair blonde.In the pale moonlight, Sphinx surveyed his surroundings, his thoughts racing. "We need to locate that crashed plane and make sure those robbers don't pose a threat to the town," he declared.Tex, always ready for action, nodded in agreement. "Ain't no time to waste. Those hombres had plenty of firepower on that bird. We’d best move."Webster chimed in, caution in his voice. "The dark could be our greatest enemy in this search, and we can't just leave our planes unattended. Suppose those robbers come upon our planes while we’re searching for them."Sphinx chewed his lip as he came to a decision. "Webster, you stay behind and guard the planes. Tex and I will head to the town. We need help for the search, and more importantly, we need to make sure the townsfolk are aware of the threat that might be headed their way."Webster nodded. “Right then. I'll hold the fort here and keep a watchful eye on our birds."To emphasis his point Webster patted the holstered Webley Revolver.“Here,” Tex declared as he went back to his plane and tossed Webster the Winchester carbine he kept stowed in the cockpit. “Just in case you need a bit more firepower.”Webster nodded his thanks. “Might not hurt to try the radio again,” Sphinx reminded Webster.“Capital idea, perhaps that interference is gone now?”Sphinx checked his M1911, his backup .38, and his field knife. All of his essential tools were present, ready for whatever challenges lay ahead. Tex patted his Bowie knife and Colt Single Action, feeling the comforting weight of his weapons. Assured by their armaments, the two men set out for the woods, their confidence unwavering as they embarked on the path to the town. Their footsteps were deliberate yet cautious, their senses honed to detect any hidden dangers lurking in the shadows. The moon above cast long, ghostly shadows as they navigated the rugged Montana wilderness, driven by a steadfast determination to ensure the safety of the townsfolk and to unveil the mysteries concealed within the wreckage of the crashed plane.As they pressed deeper into the woods, the fading light continued to challenge them. The dense canopy of trees obscured the moonlight, making their progress even more difficult. Nonetheless, Sphinx and Tex pressed on, their instincts guiding them along the winding path. Eventually they came upon a dirt road and the two made a marker of sticks to guide them back.The night was silent - save for the occasional rustle of leaves and the distant hoot of an owl. The dirt road stretched before them, winding through the heart of the dense forest. With each step, Sphinx and Tex moved closer to the distant glow of the town's lights, a beacon of civilization in the otherwise pitch-black wilderness. As they ventured on, the sense of isolation weighed on them. It was a stark contrast to their usual adventures in far-flung, exotic locales. This time, the danger was closer to home.Sphinx broke the silence, his voice a low whisper in the night. "Tex, keep your wits about you. We don't know what we're walking into, and those goons on that cargo plane meant business."Tex nodded, his sharp eyes scanning the darkness. “Ain't nobody gonna catch me off guard."They continued down the road, their senses on high alert, ready for any sign of trouble. The town's lights grew brighter.Finally, they emerged from the woods and onto the outskirts of the town. The quiet streets were lined with quaint houses, their windows glowing warmly in the night. Older model cars were parked near the houses, and even a few horsedrawn wagons. This was without a doubt a more rural part of the states.As they entered the town, the houses quickly gave way to a more municipal area, a general store, pumping station, church and town hall stood out among the many older style houses. Quickly the two spied what they were looking for: the sheriff's office, a small, weathered building that seemed like it had seen better days.“I bet it’s just a sheriff and a couple of deputies for this entire town,” Sphinx noted.“Two deputies? That’s being generous,” Tex replied. “Sheriff’s probably an old coot.”A glance between the two friends, and Sphinx rapped on the door....
