Trams of the World Collection
Exclusive die-cast scale models
All aboard - for a trip down memory laneEverybody loves Blackpool – the Prom, the Tower, the lights and, above all, the Blackpool Tram. They’ve been happily trundling up and down the seafront since 1934 – in fact, when they tried to phase them out after WWII there was a public outcry and back they came.
Well, we’ve brought them back too – in superbly detailed 1:76 scale die-cast metal. 100% accurate, this charming replica sports a cream-and-green livery with a nostalgic ad from Bruce Forsyth’s 1960 summer season at the North Pier. It will arrive mounted on a display plinth in a special presentation box, along with a 6-page colour booklet filled with fascinating facts and stories - did you know, for example, it’s called a Balloon Tram because of its curvy shape? Well now you do!
Accept this incredible price of just £1.99 (+FREE p&p) and we’ll also send you a Blackpool Tram print, absolutely FREE! Plus, you’ll be placed on our priority delivery service: each month you will receive the latest, brand new ‘Trams of the World’ replica. As an added bonus you’ll also receive exclusive FREE gifts with your next three deliveries. So, read on to find out how to take advantage of this unmissable offer…
Was this the greatest tram ever built?With your lovely Blackpool Balloon Tram model in your hands, there’s no doubt you’ll be waiting with eager anticipation for your next exclusive replica – the London Feltham Tram. This really was one of the masterpieces of transport design and engineering, the perfect combination of comfort and high-end performance. Introduced in 1931, the Feltham was an instant hit with passengers and drivers alike. It was spacious, elegant and absolutely beautiful to look at. Just like the model we’ve made for you!
You’ll be amazed at the level of detail we’ve packed into this wonderful model. There’s the authentic advertising hoardings and destination board (the No.7 really did run up to Shepherd’s Bush!), while inside we’ve included the seats, stairs and even the driver’s control panel. All in perfect detail.
And how much will you pay for this incredible piece of automotive history? Well, it’s worth £14.99, but for you, thanks to your £5 Discount Voucher, it’s just £9.99 (+ £4.99 p&p), including model, display plinth, presentation box and 6-page colour booklet. As a special ‘thank you’ for accepting this model, we will also send you ‘The Fall and Rise of the Tram’ DVD – more than 60 minutes of pure nostalgia! Worth £9.99, it is yours FREE.
More fantastic tram models - and more FREE gifts!Next up, four weeks after your Feltham Tram, is that other icon of Blackpool public transportation, the Brush Railcoach. A forerunner of the Blackpool Balloon Tram, the Brush’s snub-nosed ‘space-age’ design was a revelation. It first hit the rails in 1933, but was still going strong 50 years later – as the big, brash 1980s livery on our replica shows. It’s just £14.99 (+£3.99 p&p), and when you receive your model it comes with a FREE gift from us, a stylish storage box for you to safely put together your growing collection of 6-page colour booklets.
Then, just four short weeks later, your next replica will arrive – the Hong Kong Tram! These indestructible workhorses carry an incredible 230,000 passengers a day. Always packed to the rafters, an action-packed ride on a ‘ding-ding’ is essential for any visitor to Hong Kong. At just £14.99 (+£3.99 p&p), we'll also send you a fascinating ‘The Story of the Tram’ book. It’s worth £7.95, but you can have it on us, for FREE!
It’s an incredible offer – and you don’t even have to send any money now. There’s no commitment – ever – and you only pay for the models you decide to keep. If you return your model or cancel your order within 10 days you will owe us nothing! All subsequent issues are £14.99 plus £3.99 p&p.
A fitting celebration of the world's best tramsNo, it’s OK, no need to thank us – we love trams just as much as you do. That’s why we have put together this exclusive collection. You see, at Atlas Editions we only create collections that we are passionate about. We hope that shows in the models we have made for you.
There’s just something about trams in particular that’s warm and reassuring, reminiscent of a bygone age. Even today, tens of thousands of visitors – young and old – flock to the National Tramway Museum at Crich to relive that golden age of travel. Bendy buses? Boris buses? No thanks – nothing beats a beautifully turned-out tram! And it’s not just here that trams as held in such high esteem. They’re just as popular all over Europe and beyond, so our collection features both British and other trams from around the world. In fact, many countries still operate tram networks, and now they’re making a comeback in the UK too – and not before time.
But even so, the old ones are still the best – as you’ll discover in this wonderful collection lovingly created just for you!
