K3499-0028CC   Pacific Lumber Co Scale Shay w/Lionel RailSounds, TMCC & Electrocouplers  
    $849.95 ea.    

The most popular geared engine used in logging operations was the Shay, with over 2700 engines built by Lima Locomotive Works between 1880 and 1945. This steamer, designed by logger Ephraim Shay, features a vertical engine on the right side, an off center boiler to the left and a lineshaft that connects the engine to every axle. This provided extra power, with reduced weight, so the Shay could climb steep grades and follow rough track, two hallmarks of early logging railroading.

The K-LINE 1:48 Scale Model of the 60-Ton, 3-Cylinder, 2-Truck Shay brings this distinctive engine to the layouts of every railroader. Don't spend over $1000. Equipped with TrainMaster Command Control and RailSounds, the industry standards in remote operation and full-featured digital sound, these Shay locos have all the bells and whistles for a whole lot less.

My model of this engine is not detailed like this one.
1)My front and rear steps are black vs burgandy
2)My boiler is black except the front
3)No silver pin stripe down the side
4)Mine does not seem to have the smoke to chug sync feature

Do you have any info about variations of this model?

Thank you
