Trains, even the paper craft variety, make a great gift for the holiday season. Canon has a cool paper craft model of a GG1-type electric locomotive that you can download for free.

The GG1-type electric locomotive was developed and owned by Pennsylvania Railroad, an American company. It was known throughout the world because of its sleek body by French designer Raymond Loewy and is considered Pennsylvania Railroad’s “signature locomotive.” A total of 139 locomotives were manufactured from 1934 to 1943 and they remained in service until the beginning of the 80s. Today, although they are no longer in use and many have been scrapped, we can still find some in museums, etc.
