The Tram, which has also been called a tramcar or streetcar, is one of the oldest types of urban transportation. You can build your very own with the UGears Tram model kit and be your own conductor, all aboard!
This 154 precision-cut part kit allows you to get up close and personal with a fully functional miniaturized model of the iconic tram's propulsion system which has stood the test of time for over 100 years.
The model car is propelled by a rubber band engine in "tram mode" or can be driven by gravity in its "funicular mode" whereby one end of the rails is tilted up with a special lever to cause the car to roll to the opposite side.
The tram’s pantograph serves as a lever that powers the wind-up wheel of the rubber band engine. There’s also a start lever, direction shifter, a brake lever, and even an emergency exit in the roof. And of course, as in most of our models, there’s even a small storage space for stashing something special for a person on the other end of the route!
Add this charming model car to your model city or incorporate it into a model train circuit by elevating its track above a train.
