460 Locomotive with Tender employs all technical
solutions UGears have come up with for previous models, and more. It looks
realistic and unique at the same time.
Spinning gears, pistons and wheels carry the
body and soul of XIX century engineering, when locomotives represented the
mainstream of technical progress, the time of a fierce competition between the
developed countries in steamers’ construction.
It is the largest model, rich with details, the
fanciest model of the entire UGEARS range with the largest number of parts.
Completed, the Locomotive stands out as a truly original piece of mechanics
that required diligent assembly work. (Although it may look complex, it is not
that hard to build).
Using the massive gearwheel array, this
relatively big model can run up to a distance of 5 meters. The distance and
speed depend on the winding of our largest 12 rubber band engine. The engine is
started with a lever near the driver's window.
We’ve tried our best to make locomotive main
mechanism move as close to the real thing as possible with asynchronously
operating piston and valve. They’re clearly visible inside the model, allowing
a spectator to see how steam would get into the Locomotive’s steam chamber. The
little doors and roof hatch let you take a look inside the Locomotive’s cabin,
complete with an instrument panel and a retractable ladder beneath the door.
Self-assembly, no glue needed.
