Many thanks for the photos and other information.

I posted the same question on Facebook and got this reply:

I hope this also helps others.

I tried clicking on the link ^^ above.


It spent ages, using up my data, loading a ton of YouTube junk

& then  AFTER  all that happened, just said "Browser Not Supported"

Click  HERE  to 'upgrade' your out of date Browser (or something ?)


I don't click the  'I AGREE'  button on Ad. & Spam sites like F*c$B**%

I would be  VERY VERY WARY  as well, on clicking any 'upgrade  HERE' links

Unless it is from a  KNOWN  trusted source & not hackers or spammers


I'm told F*c$B**% is  GREAT  for drain-unblocking how to advice !

& where to buy expensive 'beauty products' from, but Trains ?

Pull the other one Suckerburger, it's got a whistle on it !


F*c$B**%s main objective is to KILL OFF all their 'competition'

Taking as much of your time & money in the process, of course !


Having said that, if F*c$B**%s sees this & wants an Ad. on Freerails

We'll take the money & maybe even grovel for it, if it's "telephone numbers" !

;)


Gerold, the very early vertical-boiler cabless Shay you Posted, is a PEACH !

That totally made my day, its lumber constructed chassis & all !

Nice links to the dudes top-notch 'Shay Site' as well.

:cool:


Eddie

I use Firefox (newest version) with the built-in blocking capabilities,

and had no problem in opening the site without any pop-ups etc.

Same with Chrome.... and a simple free Adblocker....
 

I avoid FB like the plague....

But some of its pages may be viewed without being molested.


Eddie, what browser do you use? -

and I agree, I wouldn't click on anything there.

I think I must have seen just about every 'oDd' Shay photo going.
The ONLY truly cabless or topless Shay I've ever seen, is in Post-2.

But that, by no means whatsoever, doesn't mean they didn't exist.
THEY DID !


If you were a 'back in the day' photographer, with 100s LBs of gear,
would you be looking to photograph rusty old wrecked T-boiler Shays ?

NO, of course you wouldn't !
Even the Kinsey brothers had 'priorities' as to what got photographed.


Shiny new Shays, with the logging company owner next to them, YES.
The one that got pulled out of a gulch, or had its cab caught fire, NO.

I suspect most sane photographers of the day would rather stay in town.
May get a shot of John Wayne riding down Main St. on a white elephant !


I would build the On30 model & get it finished as proof of 'conformity'.

Interesting write up on the Munro SHAYs,

certainly a different cab design then I've ever seen before.

I think one would really have to call that, a roof, rather than a cab.  :P

The small seat on the left is an interesting detail ...  L:

... but 'cabless' it isn't.  :f:



On30 dude, Steve Beck, built a 'cabless' model ...

... based on the Shay photos I put up, in Post No.2  :cool:

A very nice model it was too !  :thumb:



Just Do It !

(I think that's a trendy sneakers slogan !)  ;)
