The September issue of Railroad Model Craftsman has an article, with plan, of the small Shays--  seemed to be a lot of variation in the early builds.

If you are a Shay nut (and I'm not) the magazine is worth the price just for the article.

I haven't been getting a lot of RMCs this year -- a little too much Lehigh Valley and 3-part articles on mine blower houses for me. I mean, if you're into Lehigh Valley (and I'm an ARHS member), well, OK, but even I burn out. Maybe look at the Shay thing again -- but then, mightn't that have been a better choice for Bob Brown than the stuff he's been running in the Gazette?  I mean, the 3-part thing on the well house and stuff for the freelance HOn30 layout?

I'm wondering if many of these guys have been at it a little too long. I sent Brown some corrections for the last-issue-but-one, and he hasn't run them -- likely won't, since he was pretty angry that I pointed them out to him.

I just read this article on smaller Shays yesterday, and thought it was quite good. There are quite a few photos here of small Shays, too.

Is it the same article as Peter Fry ha written in the Logging Mining & Indutrial annual of 2009 (see pictures below)?





Cheers,

Jeroen

RMC article is authored by Mark Fry.

RMC drawing looks like it could be part of the drawing that you show, but is credited
to Ken Lawrence- "based on drawings by Mark Fry"

No idea how much of text is the same.

I have that FSM mag with the tiny Shay article also. This shows industrial models and is quite well done. As for another 10 ton Shay, look at Gilpin Tram #1(also shown)..it was sold to the Silver City line which happens to be my layout's inspiration. Gotta love those baby Shays!
