Hello, I'd like to share the construction of this Soller tram kit in 1:24 scale


this is the contents of the box



laser cut wooden boards and strips



Glossy stickers, brass wire and trasparent polycarbonate for windows



castings



photographic manual and text addendum (in italian for me.. )






I would like to put some real glass instead of polycarbonate, I will try to build this tram with good detail.

there is an optional engine for this tram (occre 55013) but I decided to build a gear box on my own.
first I make 4 steel wheels to replace the zamac castings



and then I built a gearbox with insulating delrin bushings and brass worm gear








tested now at 12volt it move well at the right maximum speed.

I have to decide how to give power to the motor, maybe with brushes similar to slot cars or contacts on the wheels.
I'll think about.. now I will put the engine aside and I build the kit. :)

I have to ask..
Can the backs of the seats move, or have you fixed them?

Truly excellent modelling.

FYI what you called pavement would be better called floor, or flooring. Floor being what you walk on, and flooring the material you cover the floor with, like wood, carpet, etc.

If you love what you're doing :rock::rock::rock::rock:

My understanding is that the Occre kits are not entry level, and don't get made in an afternoon - but this shows what can be done with care and patience :clap::clap::clap::clap::clap::clap::clap::clap::clap:

They are things of beauty. Definitely not for people with more thumbs than patience. I'd love to have the confidence to build one

If you mount the kit as indicated in the instructions it is quite simple. The seat boards are draw with a pencil and all the covers are basic ..
even windows built with polycarbonate sheet take less time to build them.

but this model also offers the possibility of adding so many details, logically it takes passion, patience and time to build them.

I have fix the roof and first six lights
