More gift ideas: Jason Vanderhill presents working papercraft SkyTrains!

Here’s another transit holiday gift idea from Jason Vanderhill: a working train set, dressed up in papercraft to look like our SkyTrains!

A video of the trainset is above, and here’s how Jason describes it:

Here is my Super Express SkyTrain Papercraft toy train set, made just for Christmas! You can buy Super Express trains at Daiso, and the blueprints for making your own SkyTrain cars are available here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/jmv/sets/72157622988887112

Jason’s blueprints are for a Mark I train and the new grey/blue Mark II 1300-1400 series train. Thanks Jason — what a fun transit craft project for the holidays!

And of course, check out Monday’s post for more transit gift ideas.
