The UGEARS 460 Locomotive with Tender combines all of the technical and artistic innovations that builders have come to appreciate in our other models and takes them a step beyond. Richly detailed with an eye toward realism and romance, this version of an indelible symbol of 19th century technology and adventure captures the imagination of all who see it.

The UGEARS locomotive is driven by rubber bands and a gear array instead of superheated steam, but otherwise its main mechanism looks and operates very much like that of a real steam engine. Up close you can see working asynchronous pistons and valves that transfer power to the locomotive’s drive wheels through a moving system of rods, linkages and cranks.

Small touches like a fully detailed engineer’s cab with retractable step ladder, art-deco boiler trim, and open-up Tinder with coal doors complete this beautiful reminder of a bygone era. The UGEARS 460 Locomotive with Tinder is our largest, most complex model to date; yet thanks to a patented plywood joint design and rigorous engineering and quality control process, a hobbyist can complete this model in a single sitting. Like all other UGEARS models, the Locomotive with Tinder comes with step-by-step, full-color, truly easy-to- follow instructions.

Assembly
All parts are pre-cut and can be assembled at home, right on a dining table. All that is needed are your own two hands, model assembly instructions and patience.

Quality
All UGEARS models are made of high-quality plywood boards using precisely cut parts. A high-accuracy laser cut method is utilized to ensure quality.

Design
UGEARS kits give people what they want: the experience of real motion mechanics that they can build and bring to action by themselves.

Benefits
UGEARS models help people understand the principle of mechanics through the process of self-assembly of motion models. They also contribute to development of logical thinking, enhancing attention and concentration skills and help to improve memory.
UGEARS, a Ukraine-based company developed the concept of self-assembly wooden models in 2015. UGEARS assembly kits offer a way to experience a world of real-life tiny mechanics. The building sets are two-in-one: a puzzle and a toy. On the one hand, they are exciting to put together, while on the other, after the assembly is complete, the models evolve into the most sophisticated toys that are amusing to kids, “ Look, the train looks like a real one!”, yet engaging for adults, “Wow, check the way the mechanical drive is connected; what is its overall gear ratio?”
