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