Ugears stepped back into the past to the Victorian age and the spirit of the Industrial Revolution, for a source of internal inspiration for their designers and engineers. A main symbol of the Industrial Revolution was the powerful and beautiful locomotive. Ugears created the V-Express Steam Train with Tender. This locomotive was a historical benchmark at the time of global technological and economic transformation of society. The Ugears Express is prepared to take you on a journey to this exciting age of inventions and innovations. The minutely detailed design of the V-Express reveals the beauty of moving details: gears, flywheel, the work of cylinder-piston arrangement, almost an exact miniature copy of one the main mechanical blocks of a real locomotive.
One full winding will give your V-Express energy enough to cover a distance of up to four meters (13'+) and change direction of movement by switching a small lever on the side of the model's body. The locomotive has three setting: forward, back, and idle. When the mechanism of the model is working in idle, you can safely observe the work of the moving elements without having to worry that your train will leave the station without you. If you want to test another exciting option, switch it into the "back" setting , the V-Express will roll back and automatically hook up with its Tender.
The Tender of the V-Express Steam Train is the coal car with lifting sides that has a hatch that can be locked with a tiny latch. Of course, driven by a rubber band moter, the locomotive needs no coal, so you have plenty ofroom in the tender for some small cargo you might want to deliver.
For an original gift idea or an engaging hobby that encourages family time around the table, Ugears kits provide hours of enjoyment.Specifications
