What Do You Call A Škoda…

Lego Škoda 7Tr2 Trolley Bus

…with a long aerial? A bumper car! Europe was full of Škoda jokes back in the 1980s and 1990s, partly because the cars were crap, but probably mostly because of communistic xenophobia. Before the poison of Communism took hold though, Škoda built perfectly reasonable vehicles. This is one of them, from their electric truck division, a glorious 1951 7Tr2 trolleybus.

This brilliant Model Team recreation of the 7Tr2 has been built Flickr’s Vilém Šustr for display at the Museum of South Moravia in Zlín, and it’s a wonderfully accurate replica of the real trolleybus. Hop on board at Vilém’s photostream via the link above.
