Steam Express Locomotive (Tender + 8 Feet of Track Included)
Assemble A Powerful and Stunning Wooden Locomotive
The minutely detailed futuristic design of the Steam 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 Locomotive enough energy to cover a distance of up to four meters. 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 locomotive will roll back and automatically hook up with its tender.
The tender 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 kit also includes 2.45 meters (96.5 inches) of tracks
