The 460 UGEARS Tender Locomotive combines all the technical and artistic innovations that the builders have appreciated in our other models and takes them a step further. Richly decorated, with an eye for realism and romance, our version of this indelible symbol of 19th-century technology and adventure captures the imagination of all who see it. No wonder it was such a hit during our Launch Campaign.
Our locomotive is powered by rubber bands and an impressive number of gears instead of superheated steam, but otherwise its main mechanism looks and operates quite similar to a real steam engine.
Up close you can see operating asynchronous pistons and valves that transfer power to the drive wheels of the locomotive through a movable system of rods, links and cranks.
Small details such as a fully detailed engineer’s cabin with a retractable escalator, an art deco boiler set and an open Coal Tender, the doors complete this beautiful reminder of a bygone era.
The 460 UGEARS Tender Locomotive is our largest, most sophisticated assembly model; however, thanks to our patented plywood design and strict engineering and quality control process, an amateur can complete this model at once. Like all other UGEARS models, the Tender Locomotive comes with colorful, really easy-to-follow step-by-step instructions.
