Did you know trains play an important part in Las Vegas history? The Mob did not create Las Vegas. That credit goes to railroad builder William Clark, who created the original townsite in 1905 at the halfway point of his rail route between Salt Lake City and Los Angeles. Clark sold lots, and a town sprouted up beside the tracks. Fun fact, the official Nevada State Steam Locomotive is a 460 built in 1910 for the Nevada Northern line and operates at the Nevada Northern Railway Museum!

 

Bring your own steam engine to life with the UGears 460 Locomotive with Tender train model kit, combining all of the technical and artistic innovations that builders have come to appreciate. Richly detailed with an eye toward realism and romance, this version of an indelible symbol of 19th century technology and adventure capture the imagination of all who see it. 

 

This 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 tender with coal doors complete this beautiful reminder of a bygone era. The UGEARS 460 Locomotive with Tender is UGEARS' largest, most complex model to date. Thanks to their 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 Tender comes with step-by-step, full-color, easy to follow instructions.
