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 main symbol of the Industrial Revolution, a powerful and beautiful locomotive is a historical benchmark commencing the time of global technological and economic transformation of society. Ugears Express is prepared to take you on a journey to this exciting age of inventions and innovations.

The minutely detailed futuristic design of the V-Express reveals the beauty of moving details: gears and a flywheel, the work of cylinder-piston arrangement – almost an exact miniature copy of one of the main mechanical blocs of a real locomotive.

One full winding will give your V-Express energy enough to cover a distance of up to four meters (3,3 feet). You can change the direction of movement by switching a small lever on the side of the models’ body. The locomotive has three settings: forward, back and idle. When the mechanism of the model is working in idle, you can safely observe the work of the moving elements without having to worry that your train will race off into the blue. If you want to test another exciting option of your new model – switch it into the “Back” setting. The V-Express will roll back and automatically hook up with its tender.

The Tender of the V-Express Steam Train is worth mentioning as a separate point. The coal car with lifting sides has a hatch that you can lock with a tiny latch. Of course, driven by a rubber-band motor, the locomotive needs no coal, which leaves plenty of room in the tender for some small cargo you might want to deliver: sweets, knickknacks and messages. The V-Express Steam Train with Tender kit also includes 2.45 meters (96.5 inches) of tracks

Assembling the Ugears’ locomotive you will feel like an inventor engineer discovering for the first time the magic of the complex mechanism taking 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 sustainably sourced high grade wood and has everything you might need for assembly.  The quality of the parts is top-notch: a laser method is used for cutting items from a plywood board that provides precise hairline cuts. The details have to be pulled out of the boards and assembled to create a complete model. Like all other Ugears models, the Steam Train comes with step-by-step, full-color, truly easy to follow 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 functional self-propelled Train with Tender.

V-Express Steam Train Tender

It was great to build this puzzle. The high quality of the laser cutting facilitates the construction and allows to obtain an aesthetically beautiful final piece. The delivery logistics of the purchased product is excellent.

Still waiting for the platform before assembling the train, how long am I going to have to wait.

A great way to pass the time!

The V-Express Steam Train with Tender kit was my 3rd U-Gears build, the 2 prior being the Steam Locomotive with Tender and the Walter E. Disney Theme Parks Train.
I’ve had countless evenings of enjoyment passing the time away, assembling these kits.
You will find that fine grit sandpaper and candle wax “are your friends”, when piecing these these models together.
The instruction book that comes with each kit, in my opinion is top notch, each with large, colourful, easy to follow and understand directions as you work through the steps of the build. The key with the instructions is to pay close attention to what is indicated with each step!
Some of the pieces are very small and delicate to remove from their boards, but if care is taken, they can be removed without damaging them.
You must have patience when assembling some of the pieces as they are laser cut to fit together with precision, this is where a little candle wax will come in handy.
Once the gears are from their boards, do not forget to lightly sand the burrs and then wax the outer their edges. This will make them work much more smoothly.
If you have patience and time, once completed, I think you will discover like I did, the result is a beautiful model that makes a great display piece.
I would recommend these U-Gears kits to anyone who likes a challenge.
Good building!

Beautiful Train model

A challenge to build (which I liked) and when done was beautiful. Some of the pieces are rather delicate and cracked while assembling or extracting from the board.
