One of the trucks with gears and lineshaft fitted. This unit is just about ready for painting and final assembly. I decided to make this Shay into a 3 truck locomotive so I will have to build another truck. The 3rd truck will carry the engineer as well as a horizontal 20 lb propane cylinder.
Front truck with brakes, only journal covers need to be installed. Brakes adapted from Ken Schroeder's Shay drawings.
That's all as of April 2, 2002. The engine should be running on air in a couple of weeks.
