Not many cities in the world can boast about tramcar systems! So if you fall into the “nay” category, don’t worry, because now you can create a full-fledged mini tram system in the privacy of your home. We based this model on the first street-cars and funiculars to ever hit the market.
Imparts a retro aura to its surroundings – you can keep it in the living room or dining area. If don’t want prying eyes, the bedroom is the ideal place to store it.
Doubles as an excellent decorative element that enhances the visual appeal of the room it is kept in.
You can utilize the model in dual modes – the tram mode is propelled via a rubber band engine, while the funicular mode is when one end of the rails is tilted up with a particular lever.
Want to build a bridge? It is extremely easy to do so by operating the levers on either end of the rail, which can then be used to lift the model above the surface it is resting on.
The pantograph is included to work as a lever for pushing out the wind-up wheel of the rubber band engine.
The mechanism is as realistic as possible, with a start lever, direction shifter, brake lever, and an emergency exit to the roof.
Be innovative with ideas – use the specific storage space to deliver a message to that special someone on the other end of the route.
The tram was my first purchase from Ugear The instructions were easy to follow although a little vague in some areas . The model was excellent but I think the use of the tooth picks could be improved on as they are to weak to preform some tasks ! tiny criticism . I will definitely be purchasing again.
I purchased the tram kit as a Birthday preset for myself and it was delivered in good time. The kit itself is well presented and the instructions looked relatively easy to follow. As this was my first experience with a mechanical wooden model kit I found that the "fit" of some items needed refining (mostly the toothpick axles) and some of the instructions could have been better laid out. Whilst my Tram doesn't run as smoothly as in the video's on the project page the build was still rewarding and the finished product works.
