This masterpiece was build by my 82 year old dad from an Occre kit.

I admire his skills as he still got ‘it’ to put magic into his builds. They are so tidy and straight. No masking tape was used while painting the roof!!!

The tram is not motorized yet, but a motor kit is ordered. The tram will stay in my collection.

Those Occre kits are remarkably complete and fiddly to build. I have had one on my workbench for 3 -5 years now. Perhaps I should send it to your Dad to complete for me! He has certainly done a great job, well done from me, the others and I am sure all of the Forum to your Dad.

Beautifully build! Your dad has very good skills indeed. But now we know from who you have your modelling skills. Like we say: the apple does not fall far from the tree! ;-)
Must be fun to share the same hobby and interest with your dad. Enjoy these moments!

Yes it is wonderful. We didn’t get along for a long time, but I am very glad we have finally found each other again and can share the train hobby! So much to learn from him!

That makes the tram even more precious as it is!
Looking forward to see it motorized.

I am presently converting an OcCre Berlin Tram to battery power and intend to write a complete article. These picture show where I am up to.

Looking forward to that. Looks good, like how you placed the cells.
Yes good idea of way to loose them. Think some work may be required to loose the top of the Motor Unit, perhaps lots of seated Figures with legs chopped of where necessary may help.

I'm planning to complete the body and then see how obvious the motor top is. But the passenger idea is a good one. I can also cut off the spigot on the top of the motor.
