Lionchief to bluetooth

I have a lionchief polar express steamer that i would like bluetooth. Is it just s matter of changing the board or is it more involved?

Not sure of the model number but its just like that one, just without blue tooth. Hence the original question.

From what I read Lionchief is Bluetooth. If you are sure about the lack of it get the model number and contact Lionel support. The board covers Lionchief and USB,. It may be just the matter of getting a Lionel app or you may have to send the engine in for an upgrade,

The in general electronic boards are limited in supply. Lionel has it in stock but must be contacted first.

Not all Lionchief is able to be controlled through the Bluetooth app. I believe it's installed in just about all of the current production stuff, but as far as I'm aware it was only remote controllable with the early non-bluetooth Lionchief stuff.

Would Lionel sell the board for Bluetooth?

They must be contacted before selling. According to the part listing.
