V-Express Steam Train with Tender
Ugears, a wooden model and 3D puzzle company known the world over for its outstanding, retro mechanical designs, pays tribute to the fascinating Victorian era with our V-Express Steam Train with Tender working train model. The steam locomotive is a standout symbol of the Industrial Revolution and Victorian age. Trains and transcontinental railroads opened up the interiors of continents, heralding an age of global technological and economic transformation. For all you train lovers and 3D puzzle enthusiasts, the beautiful steampunk V-Express will take you on a creative journey to an exciting age of invention, innovation, romance and transformation.
The minutely-detailed, retro-futuristic open design of the V-Express wooden train model reveals the beauty of its moving details: including gears and a flywheel, a working cylinder-piston arrangement (almost an exact miniature copy of one of the main mechanical blocs of a real locomotive), firebox with doors that open and close, coupling mechanism, and a coal car with closeable hatch and raisable sides.
Like all of our mechanical models, 3d puzzles, wooden puzzle boxes, robots, automatons and kinetic sculptures, the Ugears V-Express Steam Train is not simply a beautiful static model, it's a working piece of machinery. One full winding will give your V-Express enough energy to cover a distance of up to four meters (13 feet) as you send it down its track. You can change the direction of movement by switching a small lever on the side of the locomotive's body. The locomotive has three settings: forward, back and idle. When the mechanism is in idle you can observe the workings of the moving elements without having to worry that your train will race off, as it does in forward mode. The other exciting option of your new model is to switch it to “back” or reverse setting, then watch as your V-Express locomotive rolls backward and automatically hooks up with its coal Tender.
The Victorian Age, filled with the spirit of the Industrial Revolution, is a deep well of inspiration for designers, engineers and artists. The popularity of neo-Victorianism and the retro-futuristic steampunk aesthetic movements are evidence of people's ongoing fascination (particularly hipsters) with Victorian fashion, design, art and architecture. Maybe it's the complexity of today's world, the heedless speed of technological development, the planned obsolescence of our machines, that has us longing for a world powered by steam, not electrons. Maybe it's the aura of romance in those old black and white movies and posters, the couple saying their goodbyes on a railway platform as the locomotive shrouds them in billowing white clouds of steam. Whatever it is about that age, we love it too, and we know you're going to love the V-Express Steam Train with Tender. This gorgeous, realistic train model is a worthy representation of the Victorian Age.
