MOC: 1940s Trams in Stureplan (Stockholm, Sweden)

33 posts in this topic

In about a little more than a month I, together with Stockholm's Tramway-museum, will be proud to present an exhibition: LEGO-creation's about Stockholm's Tramway-history

The exhibition will consist of four LEGO-creations, created by me for the Museum for this exhibition.

However, I will let you have a sneak peak on one of the models already today.

1940s - Trams in Stureplan (Stockholm, Sweden) - takes place at the rush hour an ordinary business day in the middle of the 1940s in Stureplan - the heart of Stockholm at that time.

Reference pictures at the end of this post. Will you come at the exhibition? :tongue:

:wub_drool: Trams! In 6-wide, no less!

By the way, I was working on a Duewag tram some time ago (unfortunately, it disappeared in the boxes in its unfinished state :/) and I've noticed a few resemblances in our approach. Either way - trams rule; and this MOC is definitely a very nice recreation of the original.

Yes, yes, I would love to come to your exhibition! Can you get me a plane ticket to Stockholm please? :grin_wub:

Fantastic models. Unfortunately I will have to decline your invitation as I am still in university and won't be finished for at least another month. However otherwise I would love to see it. I presume that both models are trams, as one section does not have any rails. Your photos remind me of trams of the Dublin United Tram Company (DUTC) which operated from 1897 until 1949. Nelson's Pillar was the hub of the Dublin tram system. The Spire is there now.

One thing which I find interesting about Sweden is Dagen-H, when Sweden switched to driving on the right. These photos were taken I reckon twenty years before this.

Great work, Skrytsson.

Beautiful model trams in a nice realistic scene. The choice of predominantly brown, grey and black tones for the passengers really helps capture the time period shown in the reference pics.

Very well done.

This is a great model. The colours chosen for the minifigs really create the atmosphere of the 40s. The trams are wonderfuls models and the pictures quality is outstanding.

Really great!

Very cool creation, very realistic. You have gotten the real feel over it and those trams look so good. Well done diodrama.

I have to agree with the others - the trams are great and look so good in that shade of blue. My favourite details, though, are the poster, the giant umbrella in between the trams, and the minifig combos. Great job - and, yes, mycket, mycket snyggt!

I love full-scale (real) trams, and I also love to see them in Lego, both old and modern. Great job with the MOC.

I'm hoping that we get a tram here in Vancouver, where I live.

Picking up from my earlier comments - I was wondering whether you're planning on actually running these afterwards?

I'd have loved to have seen a complete street-integrated (i.e. 'hidden' rails within the streets, etc.) tram layout with these beauties running on it... Obviously, as it is now, my guess would be it is meant to remain as a static display scene considering the lack of rails on the diagonal track and the lack of motorisation, but I still feel you could take it one step further! Or at least that's what I'd really love to see. :sweet:

Hopefully, that will also be included in the things you're yet to reveal as part of that exhibition. :wink:

An excellent job Skrytsson the detailing on you MOC is first class! :thumbup:

There is also a place in Munich which looks a lot like your MOC as well called "Münchener Freiheit"

and the old streetcar colors are the same.
