Hi Ken
Just had a look at this on Ugears website. Looks amazing with loads of working features. I assume it is laser cut. I'll enjoy seeing how you get on with this.

Been looking at that model, have done a few ugears model kits and I enjoy them but at times it can get a bit complicated, another company is Wood Trick, not sure if the two companies are connected as there both in the Ukraine. Will watch your progress and don't forget to wax the cogs, I found sanding the cogs made a difference to the workings, guess it makes it a bit worn so smoother running.

Hi Ken
It does look rather complicated :rolling: Certainly coming together.

That certainly is different! Who knew that steam trains had all those gears & cogs inside? :smiling5:
