Bring your own steam engine to life with a UGears 460 Locomotive with Tender train model kit. This kit is crafted with the same attention to detail that hobbyists have come to count on in our quality models and that made our Kickstarter campaign so successful.
Made of high-quality wooden parts that are precision machined to fit together in meticulous perfection, this kit will delight history buffs and amateur engineers alike. This UGears Locomotive is designed to replicate the operation of a full-size steam engine pulling a coal car, or tender. A rubber band and gear system is used to represent the valves and pistons that drive real steam locomotives. The unique UGears design allows you to get a close-up view of the locomotive’s drive wheels in action using a miniaturized linkage of rods and cranks.
