Happy new year!

First of all, I would like to thank all visitors who have found my little blog the past year, in total a little over 900 unique visitors from 51 countries. Thanks as well for all reactions! It's always nice to get some feedback and encouragement every now and then.

I'm really looking forward to the new year, which already promises to become another great tramway modeling year with loads of exciting new models announced. As for me, I'll be in Canada for the next few weeks, but after that I hope to make some good use of the long winter evenings to do some fine tramway modelling. I'll keep you informed!

Have a great 2011 everybody!

T7B5 from Oslo (2)

Lileau residents are very happy with the arrival of the new Oslo tram in the city.
Shorty after the arrival of the transport from the Czech Republic, the T7B5 was spotted doing test runs. The opinion of both staff and onlookers: A great gain for the city!

Read more about the model and prototype in a previous post.

Tomytec Kumamoto 9700

Tomytec will be releasing a model of the Kumamoto City 9700 series articulated tram in march 2011.
Like the previously released Portram/ Centram the shell fits on the TM-LRT01 powered chassis. Two colours will be available, early livery (white/light blue) and late livery (white/black).

Introduced in 1997, the 9700 series were the first low-floor trams in Japan. I think they have quite a European look, as they were build in Japan under license from German manufacturer Adtranz.
