To demonstrate the pulling power of the Atlas N Scale Shay/ Converted to HOn30, forgive the equality of the picture. I had two more coaches but the hook couplers had come off of them. I think the model Shay could pull 7 more MinitrainS coaches with little or no problem.
This is the latest group of photos for the Atlas N Scale Shay / Conversion to the Open Cab HOn30 Shay. It will get a few more detail parts to help camouflage the motor, crew, paint and maybe a couple other things.
