Richly detailed with an eye toward realism and romance, our version of this indelible symbol of 19th century technology and adventure captures the imagination of all who see it. Our 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 Tinder with coal doors complete this beautiful reminder of a bygone era.
