Special First Edition

Building the New Shay

 Our Top Selling Book

by Kozo Hiraoka. From Live Steam Publishing
The 1920s geared locomotive.
Step by step "How To" build a 1920s prototype locomotive engineered in 3/4" scale with instructions for scaling up to 1-1/2" scale. This is the fifth in a fabulous series. 8-1/2 x 11", 275 pages. hardbound.

The Shay must have been Kozo's favorite locomotive.  His earlier book "Building the Shay" completely covered construction and the techniques necessary to build it.  So why did he feel it was necessary to build another Shay?  The prototype for the "New Shay" is 40 years more advanced than the prototype for Kozo's original book.  Much had changed in 40 years.  Which Shay are you going build?

Do you want to know what's involved in the construction process?  Read the discoverlivesteam article Building Kozo's New Shay
