George Bernard Shaw, Back to Methuselah (via kushandwizdom)
You see things; you say, ‘Why?’ But I dream things that never were; and I say ‘Why not?
This needs to happen in real life. I’d take you on Swedish Chef.
Burger Battle - Commence.
When cities upgrade their tram and subway fleets from time to time, what happens to the old models that get removed from service? There’s only so much space in a transit museum, so what about putting them to use for other purposes?
The Watermael-Boitsfort section of Brussels is now home to a tram car that has been converted for street food use. It features a kitchen, a take away window, a small seating section inside, and some outdoor tables. Items for sale include burgers, sandwiches, fries, salads, fried snacks, drinks, and more.
I’m not sure how this one came to be, but cities all over should take note and think about related program ideas. It creates a destination other than the scrap yard for old trams while also providing low cost facilities and structures to food entrepreneurs.
Step aside food trucks, it’s time for food trams!
(Unfortunately, despite being on tracks, it appears to be stuck in place. Maybe the next one will be mobile.)

Of all the things I’m working on right now:
- Development property for Cartoon Network
- Children’s book illustration
- Additional animated property pitch
I can’t show you any of it. But I CAN show you this photo of this charming little Lego kabob food truck that I created last night. It even has a little spinning meat inside of it.
