UGEARS V-EXPRESS STEAM TRAIN with TENDER
The Victorian Age filled with the spirit of the Industrial Revolution is a source of internal inspiration for designers and engineers. Ugears turns to this fascinating era once again to create the V-Express Steam Train with Tender. The minutely detailed design of the model reveals the beauty of moving details: gears and a flywheel, and the workings of the cylinder-piston arrangement, the ladder and the fire hole with the door you can open.
Assembling the Ugears’ V-Express Steam Train with Tender you will feel like an inventor engineer discovering for the first time the magic of the complex mechanism taking shape in your hands. Wind it up – and full steam ahead. One full winding will give your Express energy enough to cover a distance of up to 4 m (13 ft). You can change the direction of movement by switching a small lever on the side of the models’ body. The locomotive has three settings: forward, back and idle.
When the mechanism of the model is working in idle, you can safely observe the work of the moving elements. If you want to test another exciting option of your new model – switch it into the “Back” setting. The Express will roll back and automatically hook up with its tender.
The Tender of the V-Express Steam Train is worth mentioning as a separate point. The coal car with lifting sides has a hatch that you can lock with a tiny latch. Of course, driven by a rubber-band motor, the locomotive needs no coal, which leaves plenty of room in the tender for some small cargo you might want to deliver: sweets, knickknacks and messages.
