Lionel 6-11366 Pickering Shay Locomotive Legacy

Ephraim Shay, a veteran of the Civil War, revolutionized locomotive design when he recognized that conventional locomotives caused damage to the tracks despite being lighter than the heavy log cars they pulled. In response, he invented the geared locomotive. Lima, a renowned manufacturer, embraced Shay's innovation and produced a total of 2,770 Shays, continually enhancing the design. Among the most celebrated variations was the two-truck version, which boasted a range of impressive features:

  1. LEGACY Control System equipped: The locomotive can operate in LEGACY Control mode, TrainMaster Command Control mode, or Conventional mode using a standard transformer.

  2. Odyssey II Speed Control: The locomotive includes an On/Off switch for the Odyssey II Speed Control, providing precise speed regulation.

  3. LEGACY RailSounds system: This advanced system incorporates various features:

    • CrewTalk dialog and TowerCom announcements with distinct scenarios depending on whether the locomotive is in motion or stopped.
    • DynaChuff technology that synchronizes 32 levels of chuff intensity with the locomotive's acceleration.
    • LEGACY "Real-Time Quilling Whistle" control, delivering instant response for realistic 'quilling' sounds and accurately timed warning signals.
    • Single hit or continuous mechanical bell sounds.
  4. Powerful maintenance-free motor: The locomotive is equipped with a robust motor and a momentum flywheel for reliable and efficient performance.

  5. Front and rear ElectroCouplers: Enables easy coupling and uncoupling of cars.

  6. Directional lighting: The locomotive features an operating headlight and a back-up light at the rear, providing realistic illumination that changes with the locomotive's direction.

  7. Realistic detailing:

    • Separately applied coal that accurately replicates the appearance of a coal load.
    • Illuminated classification lights located on the front of the locomotive.
    • Removable coal bunker, allowing convenient access to sound controls.
    • Traction tires for improved traction and smoother operation.
    • Fan-driven smoke unit for generating realistic smoke effects.
    • Adjustable smoke output to customize the visual effect.
    • Interior cab illumination for enhanced realism.
    • Die-cast metal locomotive body, pilot, and frame, ensuring durability and authenticity.
    • High level of separately applied metal details, adding to the model's realism.
    • Separately applied builder's plates, reflecting the locomotive's origins.
    • Authentically detailed cab interior, creating a lifelike representation.
    • Flickering firebox in the cab, simulating the glow of a real fire.
    • Opening cab roof hatch for added realism.
    • Cab glass windows, allowing a clear view into the cab.
    • Engineer and fireman figures to bring the scene to life.
