The UGears V-Express Steam Train is designed to reveal the beauty of its gears and flywheel, the arrangement of the cylinder-piston is almost an exact miniature copy of the main mechanical blocks of a real locomotive.
One full winding will give your V-Express energy enough to cover a distance of up to 13 feet. 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 V-Express will roll back and automatically hook up with its tender.
The Tender of the V-Express Steam Train 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.
