Quick Overview

These amazing 3D Self Assembly models from UGEARS are fun to assemble as well as educational. The clear view of all the moving components, including gears and pendulums, creates a unique, unforgettable and fascinating look at everyday (and not so everyday) machinery and engineering concepts. Although, the kits come with clear step-by-step instruction, they can also be called puzzles as the challenge is always present. These unique self-propelled mechanical models are made of sustainable, eco-friendly wood, and each UGEARS model assembles easily and without the need for glue or special tools. Each model is capable of a unique and fascinating range of self-powered movements, all without batteries. The UGEARS Locomotive employs all technical solutions UGears have come up with for previous models, and more. It looks realistic and unique at the same time and shows off the UGEARS style and modeler skills prominently.

Spinning gears, pistons and wheels carry the body and soul of 19th 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 over 15 feet. The distance and speed depend on the winding of the largest 12 rubber band engine. The engine is started with a lever near the driver's window.

UGEARS has tried to make the 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. Once assembled, this is truly an amazing work of art and science! Number of parts: 443;
Level: Hard;
Assembly Time: 10-12 hours;
Recommended Age: 14+
