Hello everyone! How are you doing? I’m very exciting to finally show you my shay engine. It suggested as a challenge and I must say, it did deliver what it promised xD

Thought I’m really glad on how it came out! After much trial and error to get all then details of the complex driving mechanism.

I hope you like it and its complexity, probably my most detailed locomotive so far!

This one is the shay locomotive number 6 of the Western Maryland Railroad. She is a class C shay locomotive. That means she has 3 vertical cylinders to the side of the boiler and 3 driving trucks.

This project features the Wester Maryland Shay Number 6, with full cab and interior details*, buit to 3:1 scale.

As always, I hope you like it and to get your feedback! Thank you!

Make sure you give a look at the many renders.
*Due to the lack of blueprints and references some details may not the exact, specially interior ones.

Turned out pretty well. Love that front picture/render with the forest & hauling logs.
The detailing of the drive shaft seems spot on (judging from my memory).

On a side note, why don't you enter this unofficial contest? I believe it full-fills the rules & some more exposure to this nice locomotive never hurts + chance at prizes. Still working on my own entry for that one though.

Oh, if you like more challenges on locomotives, I think I could dig up an another one.
