V-Express Steam Train by UGears - build your own moving engine
V-Express Steam Train with Tender
The Victorian Age filled with the spirit of the Industrial Revolution is a source of internal inspiration for designers and engineers. Ugears turns to this fascinating era once again to create the V-Express Steam Train with Tender.
The minutely detailed design of the Express reveals the beauty of moving details: gears and a flywheel, and the work of cylinder-piston arrangement.
One full winding will give your Express energy enough to cover a distance of up to four meters. The locomotive has three settings: forward, back and idle. Switch it into the “Back” setting and the Express will roll back and automatically hook up with its tender.
The coal car with lifting sides has a hatch that you can lock with a tiny latch. Assembling the Ugears’ V-Express Steam Train with Tender you will feel like an inventor engineer discovering for the first time the magic of the complex mechanism taking shape in your hands.
The V-Express Steam Train with Tender kit includes 2.45 meters of tracks.

My husband loved building this, easy to follow instructions. Looks great. Will be buying a different model.
I RATE THIS KIT AS 10/10 I LIKE UGEARS MODELS THEY ARE THE BEST BY FAR
I have yet to start this model but from previous models the quality is great and the engineering of the construction as a whole is superb. I highly recommend them.
at present I am still trying to get the 16 rubber bands into PART 3 - having enlarged the apertures a little at a time on 3 occasions. I am confident I will ultimately manage this but perhaps the design of part 3 needs to be looked at.
V-Express Steam Train: awesome fun
Awesome experience; sometimes fiddly and care needed with manipulating the thinner parts and/or removing parts from the 'template' but well worth the effort. Looking forward to doing another one in the future.
