Featuring wooden pieces that are high-grade, sustainably sourced and eco-friendly, the buildable Victorian-era steam locomotive possesses a quality you’ll immediately notice after removing it from the box. While the build of the set is designed to challenge, it’s been carefully manufactured for ease of construction. Utilizing precise templates, the set’s sturdy plywood pieces are created with accurate hairline cuts by using a laser method.

Nothing stands between you and quality build time because no special tools, glue or noxious chemicals are required to complete the V-Express Steam Locomotive with Tender.

Now for the information you’ve likely been waiting for — all the details on this gorgeous wooden train building set. The natural wooden parts that compile the steam train’s flywheel and gears are on full glorious display with its open construction that provides a view into the inner workings of the exquisite piece. Highlighting not-to-be-missed details, this replica in miniature is comprised of components that are nearly identical to the real deal, such as the impressive cylinder-piston arrangement.
Featuring mechanical parts, the V-Express Steam Train has the power and energy to travel up to 13 feet when it’s given one full winding. Not only is the train able to move, but also the forward, back and idle settings are available with just the flip of a switch. The idle setting, in particular, is quite riveting as it allows you to fully take in the breathtaking sights of the train you built with your own hands and its moving parts while the model is at a standstill.
The locomotive’s tender is an empty coal car that’s just waiting to be filled with your own small, precious cargo. The car features no shortage of design details, as it’s outfitted with a locking hatch and sides that lift up. With its rubber-band motor, the V-Express Steam Train automatically moves backward and connects to the tender car when you move the setting to “back.”
This wooden train building model is an impressive set to spark your creativity and fill you with pride as you finish it. Once your steam train model is completed, it serves as a stunning display piece that’s sure to awe your friends and family.
