Lights Operating Smoke Unit RailSounds

Realizing that conventional locomotives tore up the track even though they were lighter than the heavy log cars they pulled, Civil War veteran Ephraim Shay invented the geared locomotive and looked to the production capabilities of Lima Machine Works, which later became Lima Locomotive Works. Lima would go on to build 2,770 Shays, continually improving the design, including this famed two-truck version.
