Train set (locomotive + gondola car)
The set includes models of a diesel locomotive TEM2U and a gondola car. This set would perfectly fit into an urban landscape of your railway. You can put any cargo in cars. Read more about the models:
1. Diesel locomotive TEM2U
Shunting diesel locomotive TEM2U is a very famous locomotive that was made in the USSR.
Being introduced in 1924 in the USSR the locomotive became a cost-effective replacement of obsolete inefficient steam locomotives. And at the same time these new diesel locomotives became a great addition for electric locomotives.
This model is a very detailed copy of the TEM2U locomotive. In addition to this amazing diesel locomotive you will find a flat wagon where you can place anything you want! For example, here in Russia we use the TEM2U locomotives to transport space rockets to the Baikonur Cosmodrome. Just imagine how cool these locomotives are! The most interesting elements of the construction such as a wheel base and a propulsion section are carefully specified.
2. Gondola car
A Gondola, also called an Open wagon, is an open-top type of rolling stock (wagons) with high sideboards. It is designed and used for carrying bulk materials/cargo (ore, coal, fluxes, timber, etc.), containers and other cargo that doesn’t require protection from atmospheric precipitations. This kind of wagons is used in many countries around the world. This model is designed as the typical modern gondola of the countries of the former USSR.
The model itself is very detailed. The most interesting elements of the construction such as wheel base and gondola are carefully specified.
Both models have HO scale and are compatible with the other UMBUM's rolling stocks and buildings in HO scale. As HO is the most popular scale of model railway in the world, we can say that these models would be compatible with the other wagons and buildings as well.
Models are made of durable cardboard of 0.5 millimeters thick; each model has double-sided full-color printing and embossing (note that embossing is a unique technology for cardboard models!). Assembling is quite easy and doesn't require glue or scissors. The kits are provided with colorful language independent step-by-step instructions.
