Stephenson's Rocket Mechanical Kit

Stephenson's Rocket Mechanical Kit


The Rocket was the most advanced steam engine of its day. It was built for the Rainhill Trials held by the Liverpool & Manchester Railway in 1829 to choose the best and most competent design. It set the standard for a hundred and fifty years of steam locomotive power. Though the Rocket was not the first steam locomotive, its claim to fame is that it was the first to bring together several innovations to produce the most advanced locomotive of its day, and the template for most steam locomotives since. In fact, the standard steam locomotive design is often called the "Stephensonian" locomotive.

Each model kit comes with

  • All wooden components shaped and drilled
  • Sandpaper for finishing
  • PVA glue
  • Parts list
  • Comprehensive instructions

The models are manufactured from renewable wood sources and are designed for age 9 and over. Younger builders may require the assistance of an adult. The models, both kits and built, are not suitable for children 3 years and under due to the risk of choking on the small parts.
