For Sale:  7.5" ga. 90 Ton 3-Truck Shay Project



 click images

90 ton 3-truck Shay 7.5 gauge, 1.5 scale steam locomotive with tender project completion   Our 90 ton 3-truck Shay (1.5 scale, 7.5 gauge) is definitely a project for someone with patience and a real appreciation of Shay Locomotives and attention to detail.

This particular locomotive was inspired by the Shay that was at Point Defiance Camp 6 in Tacoma for many years. She is about 80% complete with some brake, plumbing, engine, propane burner and finish work required. The greatest need is to refurbish the 3 cylinder engine. It has been tested on air, but most of the valve gear should be re-machined using the best materials available. New parts can be duplicated from what is already in place.

The 2011 boiler has passed the Washington State Boiler Inspection and she just completed her most recent hydrostatic test on 4/8/16.

If you pick up the locomotive in Tacoma, WA, we will give you a $300 rebate for travel expenses (and a little more of you travel a significant distance). We can crate and transport to a shipper in the Puget Sound region for a small fee to cover the cost of crate materials. A metal stand w/wheels will be included in the purchase price.

We are asking $11,800 USD with the purchaser paying for shipping fees. Our Shay is located in Tacoma, WA.   SOLD
