The cheapest shay currently being produced is the Bachmann that has sound & DCC with an MSRP of $445. The cheapest articulated logging locomotive is the Mantua 2-6-6-2 at $170. On the internet the Mantua 2-6-6-2 can be purchased for around $140 plus shipping. The Bachmann shay can be found on the internet for around $250 plus the cost of shipping. So you would need at least $150 to buy a new 2-6-6-2 logging locomotive.

I would not do that unless you are very talented and skillful individual, because Shays have many moving parts and are a lot different from a regular steam loco. If you could not do it yourself it would be a lot more expensive. Basically your only options are buy the shay for about $250 or the 2-6-6-2 for about $150. Unless you just want the shay to be non-powered and just for display.
