Die Cast Models
For many years Lledo have produced a die cast toy model of a single deck horse tram which has been seen in a number of liveries, many as tourist souvenirs. It is only approximately to scale and is loosely based on a Douglas Isle of Man car.
However, Lledo's latest model is of more value to the serious enthusiast as it could be a basis for modifications. It represents a Preston 4-wheel car in both open top and open balcony versions and is to TT scale (1:100). The first variety in the shops was an open top car in London United Tramways colours (not prototypical) and priced at only £2.99. A wide variety of other liveries have followed.
Lledo models are now produced by Corgi and are available at most good toy and model shops.
