This locomotive paper model is the Jules Verne Train ("Train Time Machine" or simply The "Time Train"), based on the science fiction adventure comedy film Back To the Future, the papercraft was designed by paperinside. The scale of the paper model is in 1:40.
The Jules Verne Train, labeled "ELB" on each side after its creator, was the culmination of Emmett Brown's previous experience with building the DeLorean time machine and working with the steam locomotive that pushed it to 88 mph (reference needed). It was a time machine itself that ran off of steam rather than gasoline, built from after 1885 to 1895. When Doc succeeded in its first temporal displacement test, he and his family traveled to 2015 or beyond to give it a hover conversion.
The flux capacitor was still included in this design, in the place of the lamp at the front of the locomotive - although in The Animated Series, it is located inside the cab to the right of the controls. Unlike the DeLorean, the external components of the Time Train were symmetrical on both sides of the vehicle, possibly representing a more sophisticated grasp of the time travel technology on Doc's part, despite being constructed from more primitive materials.
On October 27, 1985, when Doc met up with Marty McFly and Jennifer Parker, he chose the most likely place that they might be at that given time, the site of the DeLorean's destruction. Interestingly, before the Time Train appeared, it triggered the bells and gates on the nearby railroad crossing as if another train was coming.
