The last of their kind!

On the occasion of the 60th birthday of probably the most classic of all Stuttgart trams, we put out a plethora of models, now we find that we will soon have none left! Strike if you haven't already!




Maschinenfabrik Esslingen developed the four-axle articulated railcar especially for Stuttgart and its topography, and delivered around 350 of them to Stuttgarter Straßenbahnen AG (SSB) from 1959. All GT4 models are also available for H0m!
