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 main symbol of the Industrial Revolution, a powerful and beautiful locomotive is a historical benchmark commencing the time of global technological and economic transformation of society. Ugears Express is prepared to take you on a journey to this exciting age of inventions and innovations.
The minutely detailed futuristic design of the V-Express reveals the beauty of moving details: gears and a flywheel, the work of cylinder-piston arrangement – almost an exact miniature copy of one of the main mechanical blocs of a real locomotive.
One full winding will give your V-Express energy enough to cover a distance of up to four meters (13 feet). 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 without having to worry that your train will race off into the blue. If you want to test another exciting option of your new model – 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 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. The V-Express Steam Train with Tender kit also includes 2.45 meters (96.5 inches) of tracks
Assembling the Ugears’ locomotive you will feel like an inventor engineer discovering for the first time the magic of the complex mechanism taking shape in your hands. A train is always a journey. Ugears can guarantee that with the new exciting V-Express Steam Train your adventure will be anything but boring!
The Ugears V-Express Steam Train with Tender model kit is made of sustainably sourced high grade wood and has everything you might need for assembly. The quality of the parts is top-notch: a laser method is used for cutting items from a plywood board that provides precise hairline cuts. The details have to be pulled out of the boards and assembled to create a complete model. Like all other Ugears models, the Steam Train comes with step-by-step, full-color, truly easy to follow instructions in 11 languages (English, German, Ukrainian, French, Polish, Spanish, Russian, Turkish, Italian, Chinese and Korean) and requires neither glue nor special tools to be fully assembled into functional self-propelled Train with Tender.
