HAWA Tram as a Laser-Cut model in 1:22.5
my construction diary

How it started

On September 5th, 2020 I just wanted to visit the tram museum in Wehmingen near Hanover again. In doing so, I rediscovered the tram of my childhood.

I used this HAWA steel wagon to drive from Kirchrode to school and to row on the Maschsee in the 1970s. I gladly accepted unnecessary changes just to be able to drive at least a bit ´with an old one´.

The smell of wood, grease and paint, as well as the sonorous humming of the engines and gears let thousands of memories from this time arise in me when visiting the museum.
