With a dusting of snow to run through my 38 ton Shay with Revo control and Phoenix sound makes a run down back to collect a load of firewood.
Did you see that blue hobo that jumped on?
On a cold day , you need ANYTHING faster than a Shay, I love them , it will be the first steam locomotive I get but , you will never get anywhere in anything other than glacier speed
Thanks guys. Yeah the Shay is a slow chugger but it is powerful enough to pull that heavy load. My other battery powered engine is a RS3 and that might not have the grunt to pull upgrade. It was too cold to fumble with track power.
That blue guy is not a Hobo, he is part of the crew.
Nice run. Puts a strain on that loco. How many trips to get all the logs needed for the fire?
Just the one trip. It was all my frozen fingers could bear.
Great video, Todd. I really enjoyed listening to your Shay putt around the layout. May be the best sounding Shay I’ve heard. Thanks for sharing.
Thanks! I agree, the whistle and the rest is amazing. It is one of my favorite Locos.
