    LIONEL 38057 WEYERHAEUSER TIMBER COMPANY 3 TRUCK SHAY LOCOMOTIVE #5

    The Shay locomotive is based on four-wheel articulated trucks, similar to those on a freight car, that are connected to each other via gears and a flexible driveshaft. Three vertically mounted rods transfer power to the shaft from the boiler. Lack of large counterbalanced drivers, and the "hammer blow" of rod-motion that can damage track, meant that a Shay could travel on much lighter rail than a rod locomotive of the same size. Since all of the wheels were powered, the entire weight of the locomotive contributed to the tractive effort. The flexible driveshaft kept all of the wheels on the crudest temporary railroads despite rails full of kinks and the lack of a graded, ballasted roadbed. The articulated trucks ensured that the Shay could handle the tightest curves without losing its valuable load. The Lionel Shay locomotives represent historic logging railroads of the east and west coasts.
    The Weyerhaeuser Timber Company remains one of the nation's largest harvesters of forest products. This Shay Locomotive features realistic, operating rods, gear-drive and rotating flexible drive shaft. It includes dual ElectroCouplers for prototypically pulling or pushing a log train. The special RailSounds sound system includes the authentic chuffs of the Shay.
