The Blue Tram

The Tramvia Blau is a Barcelona tram route which runs between the old "La Rotonda" restaurant and the base of the Tibidabo amusement park funicular railway.

The model depicts a series 5-10 which was built in 1904. It's still in service today. You can see the beast in action here:

The kit was published in 1984 by La Ciutat de Paper and the scale is 1:43.5

I totally agree with Madbrit's comments! It this a book kit, or is it available in downloadable format? I would like to purchase a copy, but shipping from Europe would probably not be cost effective, for a single model.

Nicely done. I love the old trams and the fact that so many cities are preserving them or bringing them back as working transports.

That is a nice looking tram model. It should work well in a cityscape diorama.
