Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.

This is a set of recolors of Criquettes Tram (original not needed)
12 two-tones, 10 one-tones, 8 rusty recolors + track recolor

With this set of recolors you should have the right one for whatever kind of hood you play! =)
Of course most of these paint jobs have a vintage vibe, because that's how I roll! B-)

This set comes with a recolor for the track, darker stone and brown poles:

Everything appears in the Misc. section of neighborhood deco. If I'm not mistaken you need one EP to have custom nh-deco, but it doesn't matter which one.

You still miss a certain combination? I've added the PSD(CS3) file for download for your own recolors. You need to know how to use SimPE and a paint program that can handle psd to have any use for it!

The terrain seen in the last pic is a combination of Stev84s cobblestreet and CurlyReds walkway and can be downloaded here (GoS).
Deco buildings can be found here and here (LJ).

Polygon Counts:
Tramcar: 364
Tramway piece: 296
Tramway loop: 4265

The trams were the one piece of Criquette's magnificent neighborhood deco I had never installed, and now I have to. My Downloads folder curses you. I thank you.
