Between that photo and what Michael has been posting about two weeks ago, Lisbon seems to be a great place to model, although I bet I couldn't model two blocks a year for the amount of details needed.

I think I've asked this before, but I forgot the answer, what's the gauge of the track? It looks like meter gauge, and I think Michael had said it was a little more than that.

I see that they have graffiti maggots over there also.

Years ago, a SEPTA security guard caught one ''tagging'' a station in the Philadelphia subway.

The guard pulled the maggot's pants down, and emptied the spray can on the maggot's crotch.

Shame that it wasn't a can of oven cleaner.

Gauge is 900 mm or 2'.11 7/16" i.e. nominal 3' gauge.

I'm NOT a rivet counter but there is something a little odd about that photo :

- it looks like the tram number is 28 but it is not on the normal 28 Route
  (I can't quite read the destination board); I travelled the whole 28 route several times only a couple of months ago & there's nowhere quite like that;

- it looks slightly different to the normal Lisbon trams;

- the building style is slightly different to the Lisbon old quarter.

I'm probably mistaken but it might be Oporto, not Lisbon. The building style is fairly Iberian (i.e. Spain or Portugal). Possibly even South America somewhere ??.

You are right it is on an incline. Not on a tram line.
