I love trains and streetcars and have always enjoyed riding them when there are not so many people on the road. Mostly at night. It is totally relaxing to drive alone through the night and look into the darkness. The children’s toy is made of metal and a Siku Straßenbahn Nr. 1011 which I put on the conveyor belt at the supermarket checkout while shopping. At home it stood on my shelf until I had the idea to electrify the little streetcar. So I unscrewed it, added an LED and small button cell batteries and a super tiny switch. This was harder than it looks, because with my big hands I had to concentrate not to break anything. Even though this is just a very simple project, I was happy with the result and I often take the model in my hand to just turn the light on and off again. Because I can.
