Help please...

Looking for prototype photos,
of narrow gauge Open Cab T-Boiler Shay.

I am hoping to kitbash a Bachmann On30 Shay,
and to prove 'conformity' I need a prototype photo,
to show that these actually existed somewhere in the world.

Many thanks for your help...

Peter

Peter

Google "Shay Locomotives.com" for a number of photos of the T-Boiler Shays,

for a challenge you could build one of the 4 left hand Shays, built for service in Mexico.

The photo shows #4 (Lima 1673)

that operated cabless after a roll-over accident,

and was converted to 3' in 1917 after the 1913 abandonment.

Can't tell for sure if this one has T-boiler, apparently also known as boot boiler,

Oh, and if your lumber company needs an airplane,

here's a reference for that existing in the real world.

"F. Edwin Mower and Ben Alley,

in Front of the Mower Lumber Company's Plane,

Charleston, W. Va."

Oh Lord!

Like things aren't hard enough with scales, gauges, finescale, tinplate, eras, steam,
diesel, command control, walk around, DC, DCC, prototype vs freelance and whatnot,

now you wants us to do obscure airplanes also... 

Jose.

But who wouldn't want a pretty little Mower Lumber seaplane,

to go with their Mower Lumber Shay?

(hmm, I suppose the creative kitbasher,

could come up with a Mower Lumber Shayplane)

Only a vertical boiler version, not a T-Boiler version.


Seems the loco frame was built like a bridge truss,

with the roof an afterthought.
