Steam Locomotive - build your own moving model by UGears
The feeling you get at the end of solving a puzzle is indescribable, and that is exactly the sensation you will experience once you complete creating your own version of the UGEARS 460 steam locomotive, described as being both exceptional and realistic.
- Structured as per XIX century engineering with wheels, pistons, spinning gears, and other components designed to resemble its real life replica back then at the time when technical progress was at its pick.
- Attention has been paid to each and every detail, as is evident from the fancy styling and this model having the most parts in the UGEARS range.
- The engine is operated using a lever near the driver’s window, and can be steered up to a distance of 5 meters using the gigantic gearwheel array.
- If you are interested in the mechanism of the good ol’ steam engine, you can take a peek at the asynchronously operating piston and valve inside the model that clearly shows how steam is channeled into the steam chamber.
- The cabin is styled in an authentic fashion that includes an instrument panel and a retractable ladder beneath the door – you can use the roof hatch and tiny doors to look at inside.
- For your convenience, each piece is pre-cut using plywood boards so it is super-easy to snap or snip them out. No glue is needed, so you can say goodbye to sticky fingers!
The package includes an instruction manual so you won’t any trouble in understanding how to build the locomotive. It is not tough to build it – all you need to do is be a little patient with the model kit and soon you will be able to assemble it perfectly. Won’t this make a lovely gift for your friend’s upcoming birthday? Go right ahead and place your order!

MODEL MAKING STEPS UP A GEAR
I buy a lot online and this company comes top. Some have bad packaging - this was excellent. Some you give special delivery instructions and they are ignored - this arrived on the exact day requested. These things for a well run company you might expect but having mentioned it was a 30th birthday present for my son a birthday card was included! Personal touch SUBERB.
Seit Dezember 2017 bin ich infiziert mit dem Ugears-Virus! In den letzten 6 Wochen habe ich 6 Ugears Modelle zusammengebaut. Ich bin begeistert! Alles passt genau, ist bis ins letzte durchdacht und funktioniert! Auch die Bauanleitungen sind sehr gut! Ohne Worte versteht man alles. Ich werde in Zukunft alles von dieser Firma kaufen, was raus kommt! Anregung: Entweft bitte ein 5 Jahre Jubiläumsmodell mit mindestens 2000 Teilen:-)! Danke!
I love the way the product is presented, I bought the steam locomotive, and maybe it is a bit too advanced as a first-build.Ive got to the end of Phase One with the gears and wheels completed and the instruction then is to turn it over to continue the build. Mine had parts that dropped off when I did this! I’ve gone through the instructions a few times now but can’t see what I’ve done wrong. Maybe I can’t see the wood for the trees, so I’m suspending the build for a while, then I’ll get back to it. I do hope I haven’t bought a “pup”
