That, Sir, is a truly wondrous artefact./DesktopModules/NTForums/themes/mls/emoticons/w00t.gif

I would be VERY proud to have one like that to run on MY layout anytime!

Trouble is, to build one here in UK would require cannibalizing an $850 Bachmann model...

Thanks TAC,
Actually, the only Bachman Shay parts used were one cylinder of a 3cylinder motor(was cutting it down for a two cylinder shay-still need to do that!) and one gutted Shay truck(cut it in half) and the gears. Most I picked up used. Fun project, but much BIGGER job than I anticipated. You can see more on my web site of it, including a youTube video of it running. Jerry
