The “Cibeles” model represents a Madrid tram belonging to the C.E.M.T. (Madrid Electric Traction Company).
These trams were originally painted red, which was why people called them “cangrejos” (crabs), a nickname that has stuck until the present day, despite the fact that way back in 1908, when they were brought from the C.E.M.T. by the Sociedad General, the colour was changed to yellow
The “cangrejo” is a tram from 1901, belonging to the series 1-20. It could carry 15 passengers sitting in crossways wooden benches, 7 standing on the driver’s platforms and 10 on the other. She was fitted with 2 A-B-60 Schuckert 30 HP electric motors.
Each tram was manned by a driver and a conductor.
Starter Paint Pack Includes:
5 x 17ml Vallejo model paints. Vallejo paints are supplied in plastic bottles of 17ml with an eyedropper device which keeps paint from drying and prevents spills. The model color range has been specifically developed for adherence on difficult surfaces such as metal and plastic, but the product is not toxic, not flammable, and does not give off noxious fumes.
