OcCre's wood and metal kit contains all the parts necessary for making an accurate and impressive replica. Laser cut wooden parts make up the loco body, which is then covered with individual African walnut strips. A large array of cast metal parts forms rods, buffers, carriage springs, bushes and couplings. Brass parts include piston, connecting rods, bands, handles, connecting rod, hook and chain. The tender is complete with such life-like details as hatch covers, grating- even a load of coal gravel.

Photographic instructions make building easy.

The Adler (German for 'Eagle') was the first locomotive that was successfully used commercially for the rail transport of passengers and goods in Germany. The railway vehicle was designed and built in 1835 by the British railway pioneers George and Robert Stephenson of Newcastle. It was shipped in pieces from Newcastle to the Port of Rotterdam, from there it was transported up the Rhine to Cologne, and from Cologne, with a great deal of difficulty, it had then to be transported overland to Nuremberg. When it finally reached its destination it was put back together at the workshops of Johann Wilhelm Spaeth. The coaches were built in wood by local workshops. It was delivered to the Bavarian Ludwig Railway, Bayerische Ludwigsbahn, for service between Nuremberg and Fürth. On 7th December 1835 it completed its maiden journey from Furth to Nuremberg, along a line measuring 6.04 km in length.. The Adler was a steam locomotive of the Patentee type with a wheel arrangement of 2-2-2 (Whyte notation) or 1A1 (UIC classification). The Adler was equipped with a tender of type 2 T 2.

Please note: Carriages and display base are available separately.


Starter Paint Pack Includes:

Vallejo paints are supplied in plastic bottles of 17ml with an eyedropper device which keeps paint from drying and prevents spills. The model color range has been specifically developed for adherence on difficult surfaces such as metal and plastic, but the product is not toxic, not flammable, and does not give off noxious fumes. 

Please note: The paint packs offered are only our suggestion from the box art and will not match directly with the instructions found within the kit.
