Any one know if they make a shay or goose in N gauge?
If there was I'm sure they could sell a zillion of them. Sorry to say none that I ever heard of. Some of the modelers have kit bashed some on there own, Tyson would be one of them and did a beautiful job. Ron
Check out Republic Locomotive Works.
If you get one, give us a report!
Found this on ebay , it quite expensive though , worth a look just to drool
also it appears that the gearing actually works as well !
N scale shay on ebay
if u wanna check this is i think every N scale loco out there
I found this on the net it is a two truck shay kit take a look. If you buy one let us know what you think of it. http://www.smallscalelogistics.com/nshay2.html
Now all you have to do is wait for the Atlas Shay.
Only problem is they have not announced estimated price nor delivery date.
Hi Guys & Gals,
There are pictures of the on coming two truck Atlas Shay on the N Scale Supply web site. Ron
Thanks Ron for the news , any chance of posting the URL for the website ?
I love it can't wait to see one.
Very exciting news, a shay. I am planning a separate, small layout with a VO-1000 and the shay, as a little woods branch line. Planning on MT log cars, atlas 55 ton fishbelly hoppers, and a wooden B&M caboose kit I am coming out with soon.
Another pic of it can be found here, my friend chuck went to hobby visions (chuck is the proprietor of the Feather River Train Shop): http://www.featherrivertrains.com/N-NewStuff.htm
A huge issue for many is a front coupler - for those who don't frequent the big board, Paul Graf from Atlas said yesterday the shay WILL HAVE a working coupler at both ends. And it should be out spring of 2004.
I bet this one smokes sales records!
I bet this one sets a new high for an Atlas price point.
Rick I would bet we see this with a street price between $125 and $150, we will know in probably 1-2 months. Hoping they have test shots at the springfield show in february.
If they can hit a price in the above range, these things are going to evaporate! It may be high compared to normal Atlas pricing, but you are getting a very unique loco that has some intense engineering in it. Worth $150 street to me, if it runs smoothly and has even semi-operational gear.
Hey Toxie it wold be nice if it was DCC ready if it does,t come with a decoder in it Wendell
Yes, DCC would be nice from the factory. No word yet from Paul & co. about that. I suspect it will either come with factory DCC or be a plug in type situation.
exciting times in N scale!
