3D Mechanical Puzzle - Tram

Product Details

Tram (also known as tramcar or street car) 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 UGears portfolio – apart from a ton of built-in retro flair, it can carry a 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 that 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!

Add some color to your contraption by painting the wood with watercolor paints before assembly.
