Ben and other listers,

Did Klasing ever produce a power brake with a wheel and if so what did
this look like? I am only familiar with their lever type and so if
Klasing brake is listed should one assume that it is a lever type or
could it also be a wheel type power brake?
Klasing offered several different versions of their horizontal-shaft power handbrake; see Pat Wider's comprehensive article on handbrakes in Railway Prototype Cyclopedia #10
