Each segment is a folded from a single square of paper with no cuts or glue. The design is from a book I bought more than twenty years ago. It is all in Japanese, by Yoshihide Momotani. There are instructions for other types of train cars as well. The theme of the book is transportation, so there are also boats, cars, etc., but in my opinion the train is the best of what the book has to offer.

Do not miss the Wenham Museum special train exhibits! I think Arden could spend every day here looking at the 15+ giant train-scapes in gauges G-Z with buttons the kids can press to make the trains go. These are amazing and even feature a small torch-wielder cutting up old steam train parts with new diesel trains whizzing by. Downstairs there is a play area with a table of lincoln logs, playhouse, costumes, store stocked with 1950s play food items, typewriter, and rotary phone, among other things. They have book signings too and we were able to meet local author Kristin Kladstrup and have her sign our copy of The Gingerbread Pirates.
