    Hi steamhead.
    Yes, they are paper train.
    I use parts for 16.5mm DC model train.
    Wheels Motor and so on.
    It runs as a HO model railroad train.:thumb:

    Here are some paper train builder in Japan.
    They show me how to make it.:wave:

    I'm awestruck..!!!
    There was a fellow card modeler who was building a Big Boy or Challenger locomotive out of card stock a while back...But I haven't seen any updates on his work for some time. Any idea what became of him..?? That also was looking like an awesome job....

    I do not know paper Big Boy or Challenger.

    But here is a site. He wrote many "how to make paper train" in Japan.
