I just recieved my new 3-truck Shay and cannot express what a great loco this is. I have a Shay, Heisler, and a Climax that I really like but this unit is the best thing going...... Great Work Bachmann



The 3-truck shay is one sweet engine.  I can't run mine enough!

I haven't been able to afford the new Shay yet, but I saw a friends and it's the finest looking engine I've ever seen.
I did buy a new 36 ton Shay last month and it wasn't ruuning right, I had to send it back. I just notice the warranty card is still in my sun visor of my truck....

Quite a few on Ebay recently,, if you believe the sellers!!  A friend told me Mizzel Trains in denver had one or two, but if they still do you won't like the price, I didn't ::)

Steve, I have a friend that has several Shays still new.  He has so many trains, he doesn't have time to run them all.  He's been retired a couple years and he's trying.
