HOW UGEARS TRAM LINE MODEL WORKS
Tramcar: equipped with an overhead pantograph for stepping it up to “drive” mode and a knob for opening and closing doors. Wind it up and watch it chug along the rails towards the Depot. Rotate it at 180 degrees on the turntable and see it move to the end of the line. All the motion is powered up by a simple rubber-band motor.
Tram stop: placed on the platform and complete with a clock, a bench, a ticket booth and a removable staircase that can be placed at any part of the platform.Tram depot: featuring a gate and a turntable, Tram Depot is the place where the tramp prepares for the next trip according to the route timetable. A turntable is equipped with a special “tongue” on its rails that stops the tram in a closed position, reclining after the turn of the turntable, allowing the tramp to enter the return route.
