BART Train Engine

Categories: Trains


My three year old son loves trains. Every weekend we are visiting train museums or riding our local subway around town. He has just about every Thomas the Train and a small inventory of Chuggingtons. My New Year’s resolution is to bond with my son, since every other word out of his mouth contains “Mom”. I created a bunch of hand drawn BART trains for my son and he has been playing with them ever since. I decided to PhotoShop a BART train so if my son went Godzilla on them I would simply print out new ones.

My web skills are a bit rust so I decided to create this site for practice and share my Father and Son projects with you. Nothing is more rewarding than hearing “Daddy I Love You”. Hope you enjoy the journey….

I designed the BART train so a seven year old could assemble. Click the download button for a print ready file.




Step 1:  Download BartEngine.pdf and Print (Preferably in Color on Photo Paper)



 Step 2:  Cut the front of the Bart Engine and across the dotted line as shown



Step 3:  Fold paper across all the lines to form a box



Step 4:  Tape the small flange to the train’s bottom, creating a clean joint



Step 5:  Tape the bottom nose portion of the cab and fold over the excess



Step 6:  Tape the top nose portion, the train is DONE
