This miniature replica of the 19th century steam engine is a perfect gift to celebrate the era of steam power. Despite being powered by a rubber-band motor, Steam Locomotive features an ingenious system of visibly functioning asynchronous pistons and valves connected to drive wheels through moving rods and linkages that creates a beautiful working example of a steam engine’s operations. The most popular model at our Kickstarter campaign, Steam Locomotive features real-life details such as, a fully equipped engineer’s cab with retractable step ladder, art-deco boiler trim, and a Tender with functioning doors. It is our largest and the most complex model to date; nonetheless, with easy to understand step-by-step instructions and quality design it can be fully assembled in a single session. A perfect gift for wooden train kits enthusiasts.
