Nice design, I do think white is a bit overused though. To me this would be better with more light gray.

That is a really nice system-scale trolley... Really fits in with the rest of your town.

San Fransisco trolley cars are cable-powered, and are the last manually operated cable car system in the world. Incidentally, the system uses 3.5 foot "cape gauge" instead of the 4 foot 8.5 inch standard gauge like most US railroads.

Beautiful piece of work and thanks for sharing.

It's not meant to be a San Franciscan trolley, right? Perhaps you've taken creative license which is cool. The operator is set back from the front as I remember and has a huge lever to operate the car.

If it is SF you need some panhandlers hanging around, ha ha. Just kidding, that's one of the great things about Lego, isn't it? You can choose to omit those undesirable details if you wish (or perhaps emphasize them). That's something that attracts me to Lego anyway.

There is a bit more visible white than you would see on a real Trolley car - The front and back would be covered in advertising.

Panhandlers - There's an idea for minifigure S10. Great observation. When I took the photos (back in April/may) I did not have my S7 Hippie minifig - he definitely belongs on this model.

I adjusted the design slightly to fit more minifigs in, but wanted to keep the feel and colours. I might make some tweaks....
