Trams

Hongkong Tramways is one of the earliest forms of public transport in Hong Kong. The tramway runs on the northern side of Hong Kong Island between Shau Kei Wan and Kennedy Town, with a branch circulating Happy Valley. Each day 240,000 residents commute by tram. Trams in Hong Kong have not only been a form of transport for over 100 years, but also a major tourist attraction and one of the most environmentally friendly mass transit systems.

Various tram models have been produced over the years, to differing scales. WJB produced around ten models in the 80's and 90's to a scale of approximately 1:90, most carrying advertising of some sort. A further three models were issued by Sun Hing Toys which use the same casting. In 2012 Tramric Product and Design issued four new models, again using the WJB casting. Sunny Max issued three trams, to a similar scale around 2000. Peak Horse were the first to release trams at a scale of 1:76 and approximately twenty were issued, in various liveries. The company disappeared in 2002 and it wasn't until 2010 that a new model was issued by 80M Bus Model Shop and using the same Peak Horse casting. After only three releases, 80M commissioned a much improved casting in late 2010. In early 2011, Bachmann China issued five new tram models, again to a scale of 1:76, and these feature a plastic body with a diecast bogie with one axle being motorised together with a working LED headlight. In August 2014 80M issued a model of the 'new generation' tram.
