MOC: 1940s Trams in Stureplan (Stockholm, Sweden)
Posted 04 April 2012 - 09:21 PM
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?

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?

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.

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.

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

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

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.
