ADLER 2-2-2 STEAM LOCOMOTIVE, 1835
Built in 1835 by Robert Stephenson & Co. of Newcastle, the Adler (German for "Eagle") was the first locomotive to run successfully in Germany. The engine and tender were delivered to Nuremberg in over 100 individual pieces, and assembled in the engineering works of Johann Wilhelm Spaeth. The coaches were built in wood by local craftsmen.
The Adler completed its 6.04 kilometer maiden voyage between Nuremberg and Furth on December 7, 1835. After running for over twenty years, the now technically outdated locomotive was sold for scrap.
OcCre’s wood and metal kit contains all the parts necessary for an accurate 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.
