A blast from the past with with an Amsterdam tram

Amsterdam trams have been in service for over a century – from the days of horse and buggies, now transitioned to the era of electric powered vehicles. This LEGO model by KMbricklab features a model that was in service from the late 20s to the late 60s, with a distinctive, iconic, and classic look. This build is full of details, and I especially like the detailing of the pantograph and makes me wonder if a truly electric powered LEGO tram car would be possible to be built. It would certainly fit in very nicely into a LEGO City throwback scene!

At the sound of the whistle its Train Time again, constant reader and fortunately for all of us Sérgio Batista (SujiroLegoTrains) can feed our mutual craving for the rails. First up is the “CP1900” Portuguese Railways diesel locomotive all decked out in a Halloween color scheme.

And since Saturday nights are made for double-shots, let’s also enjoy the charming “Sintra´s Tram” whose title I initially misread as “Sinatra’s Train“. I like to think the Chairman of the Board would have liked this tram, it has style.
