Title: Prototype for a new On30 Shay
Post by: ksivils on September 02, 2017, 09:20:42 PM
This shay still survives, is actually 30 inch gauge, and while a little beefier is still just a two cylinder Shay. Love the cabbage stack!

I, too, like cabbage stacks and was thinking of changing the stacks on most of my fleet. However, the standard gauge Challenger might just look a bit, well, strange! ;D

  There a surprising number of 30" gauge SHAYS still around, at least 18 some operational, most on display
from B Class 20-2, B Class 42-2  up to a C Class  60-3.( personal favorite)

  Although 23&1/2" gauge the Left Hand Drive SHAYS for San Luis de la Paz  # 757, 758, 836, 827 wold be neat to
operate and confuse people.
