Many of the buildings in the Kingsway range will be suitable for a street tramway layout. Whilst there are also a couple of London tram depot frontages available, it may be useful to look through the LT bus garage category as many had a tramway history. Poplar, Wood Green and Edmonton are some that might be considered.
The advertisment sheets listed below are relevant for London Trams of the LCC and LT periods. The adverts have been researched from prototype photographs with additional reference to brand colours of the day - they are as accurate as I can make them!
This is 'Kennington tram depot' on my own London tram layout. It is based on the Kingsway Models Wandsworth WD kit, with some major additions in the form of extra brick and window parts which roughly follow the style and arrangement that applied during tram days. The track arrangement on my layout is rather different from the prototype Wandsworth depot, but the general style is similar.
Another view of the depot with a couple of E1s displaying the very common and long lived Bisto side advertisment (from the LT sheet) as well as various smaller ones.
The ADV advert posters were a typical sight during the tramway era. This display is on the end wall of a TERBF Large Georgian terraced house. Find the ADV posters by clicking the button.
This was a 'round the room' shelf layout that I built some years ago. Two of my E1s are seen at Trinity Square.
The poster is in the style of the LCC / LT poster series, and shows another part of the layout.
Another view of Kennington Cross, showing typical tram era features. The APH Angel pub has been modified to house a cafe and a radio shop.
The curved art deco CMM Majestic cinema once stood in Tooting.
The UCC Feltham tram carries 'demiside' adverts which are included on the LT trams sheet.
The faux LCC / LT tramway poster shows the CWLO Odeon cinema on the shelf layout.

A short video showing photos of my first two London Tramway layouts based on Kingsway Subway , and Dog Kennel Hill.
These layouts were exhibited from 2004-2010 , and eventually led me to create the Kingsway Models range of card building kits.
