For those of you who like Shay builds Take a look at this neat kitbash It was built by a friend who is in love with geared engines I think he did a splendid job and it runs as good as it looks  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HqCj8zF2Fpo&sns=em

Great looking conversion and runs very nice. One day I would like to do a 2-6-0+0-6-2 SHAY conversion based on the prototype built in Brazil from a Standard gauge 3 Truck SHAY.:moose::glad:

Ha, I read that as a 6 Truck Shay - clicked the link expecting a rather large, maybe the largest Shay Locomotive ever! Oopps a 6 axle, a-ha, more my style, I really like the weathering and paint job, this Shay looks great chugging along so slow. My favorite locomotive to see in action, your friend did an excellent job on this one.
