Locomotive with tender "UGEARS 460" employs all technical solutions used in the previous models. It looks realistic and very unusual at the same time. Spinning gears, pistons and wheels carry the core and soul of XIX century engineering, the time of a technical competition between the developed countries in steamers’ construction – whose engine is larger, faster, and more powerful. Those days’ locomotives represented the mainstream of technical progress.
It is the largest one, rich of details, so to say «the fanciest» of the entire range of UGEARS mechanical models. At the same time, it is very comprehensible and agreeable in assembly. Completed, the Locomotive stands out as a truly original piece of mechanics that required diligent assembly work.
Our steamer comes with a very detailed step-by-step colored instructions manual. All details are already cut out and can be easily removed from the board. Firstly, you want to put the smaller parts together to form the large blocks: the wheelbase, body, and gear-wheels – which will altogether complete the whole model.
You are all ready to go now. The engine is started with a lever near the driver's window and picks up speed. The model can run up to a distance of 5 meters. The distance and speed depend on the winding of the rubber band engine.
This complicated and beautiful mechanism made entirely of wooden materials is a very impressive work leaving no one indifferent.
After having the assembly completed, put your model on a flat surface or on the track and hook-up the tender.
It will be attached securely. To remove the tender use the lever near the coupling. Model is designed for self-assembly without glue.

CORE UGEARS FEATURES
NATURAL. Made from wood materials. UGEARS models are produced in Europe from high quality wooden materials. They are sturdy and long-lasting.
NO GLUE CONNECTION. Assembling without glue and chemicals. UGEARS models don’t need glue or special tools to connect parts. which makes watching it working and moving even more exciting. You can assemble them at home on the table. All you need is your own hands, patience, and assembly instructions.
SELF-ASSEMBLY. Parts are already cut and ready to assemble. Models are equipped with everything needed for assembly. The quality of the parts is very high – a laser method is used for cutting items from a plywood board. Firstly, you put the smaller parts together to form the large blocks: which will altogether complete the whole model.
MECHANICAL. UGEARS models produce motion, are self-propelled. Instead of a simple static display, each model is capable of a unique and fascinating range of self-powered movements, all without batteries, and some of them can go up to 5 meters!
UNIQUE DESIGN. Each UGEARS model is not just a construction kit, but a piece of art and a great idea of perfect mechanism embedded in each design. Putting them together, you bring the idea to life. The beautiful structure of gears is not only creating motion but also looks beautiful as home decoration.
EDUCATIONAL. Ugears models are perfect for family projects through hands-on STEM learning.
Each UGEARS model brings a rewarding feeling of assembling with your own hands, inviting you and your beloved into the awesome and cool world of mechanics. Assembling models is a fun and trending hobby for grown-ups and kids alike. It’s great to understand mechanical, engineering and math concepts. Dedicated to teaching the craft of woodworking, with a hefty dose of humour and realism, UGEARS puzzling unites parents and kids, fathers and sons. t’s unforgettable time which you share with your beloved ones making real things together.
Our designs are inspired by real-life mechanisms and embody our love of art and ingenuity. We believe that building these beautiful working models should be fun, and we have dedicated our engineering know-how and meticulous product testing and quality control to a single goal: Ensuring that our models provide an engaging and rewarding experience for the whole family.
UGEARS began as a startup established in 2014 in Kiev, Ukraine. In less than two years we have taken fourteen of our visionary designs and brought them to life in the form of model kits made from sustainably sourced wood, delighting people throughout Europe. Our patented plywood joint design adds to our models’ popularity by making them simple and easy to assemble.
In 2015, backers funded our wildly successful Kickstarter campaign at 20 times over our original goal. To us, this says that even in our world of video games and virtual reality, people still get excited when they find creative and fulfilling ways to use their hands. Our business fuels this excitement as well as gives individuals and families the opportunity to come together through the joy of hands-on modelling.
Please take a moment to review our catalogue and website. Then join us in bringing our old-school, but yet-so-cool world of mechanical modeling to builders everywhere!
