The main symbol of the Industrial Revolution, a powerful and beautiful locomotive, is a historical scale that begins the era of global technological and economic change in society. Ugears Express is ready to take you on a journey into this exciting age of inventions and innovations.
The V-Express's detailed futuristic design reveals the beauty of moving details: gearbox and flywheel, the work of cylinder-piston arrangement - almost an exact miniature version of one of the most important mechanical blocks of a real locomotive.
A full winding gives your V-Express enough power to cover a distance of up to four meters. You can change the direction of movement by using a small lever on the side of the model body. The locomotive has three settings: forward, reverse and idle. When the model's mechanism is idling, you can safely observe the work of the moving elements without having to worry about your train racing into the blue. If you want to test another exciting option of your new model - switch it to the "Back" setting. The V-Express rolls back and automatically connects to its tender.
The tender of the V-Express steam train is worth mentioning as a separate point. The coal truck with lifting sides has a hatch, which can be closed with a small bolt. Of course, the locomotive, driven by a rubber band motor, does not need coal, which leaves a lot of space in the tender for some small loads you may want to deliver: Sweets, knick-knacks and news. The V-Express steam train with tender kit also contains 2.45 metre tracks.
When assembling the Ugears locomotive, you will feel like an inventor discovering for the first time the magic of the complex mechanism that takes 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 sustainable high-quality wood and has everything you need for assembly. The quality of the parts is first class: Using a laser process, parts are cut from a plywood panel that allow a precise haircut. The details must be pulled out of the boards and assembled into a complete model. Like all other Ugears models, the steam train comes with step-by-step 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 a functioning self-propelled train with tender.
