Its not a shay......i copied and blew up ,then zoomed in on the locomotive....shays always have the driveline on the right side.....this has nothing. Maybe its a dunkirk type loco.
Woodie and Mudge are real good at identifying locos, maybe they will voice an opinion as too the locos heritage and wheel setup.
Wheel setup from what i could see is a 4--4--4....maybe a 2-2 setup on the tender area.
Not sure what part of the world this travelling show layout is from, New Zealand is what i think, but not sure of. I have never been able to find out who specifuically built it.

The many wheeled models are a lot like what Ollie Smith of New Zealand made after they outlawed steam in the woods. The double ended model is like a prototype one he made also.

This loco is on Murray Reid's On3 logging layout, the "Steamwinders & Sawdust." Google it, go to the loco roster it is at the bottom of the photos.

Thanks, apparently it is a variation on a 4 truck climax of some sort.

its october 24...2011, just finished cruising ebay and going thru a sellers listings.........voila......one O scale coon gap sawmill has appeared and listed starting at $875.00 . This one of 50 produced, featuring 2300 + parts I cannot go after it......tapped $$$$$$ out .
it finally sold for $831.00 last nite oct 31...2011
Might be the one that the seller was offering to the members here at $2500 (only!) before he sent it to Ebay.
Also before I deleted his ad, and him also.
