Tram (also known as tramcar or streetcar) is one of the oldest types of urban transportation. A famous San Francisco cable car was put on rails in 1873 and works to this day! UGears tram is inspired by the first street-cars and funiculars, and is probably the most romantic model in our portfolio – apart from a ton of built-in retro flair, it can carry a love message to the other side of the table!
The model is propelled by a rubber band engine (tram mode) or can be pulled by gravity (funicular mode) when one end of the rails is tilted up with a special lever. Levers on both ends of the rail can be used to elevate the model above the ground, creating a ‘bridge’.
Tram’s pantograph functions as a lever which pushes out 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 to the roof. And of course, as in most of our models, there’s a storage space for something special for a person on the other end of the route!
