An oil fired fictional shay steam locomotive with working drive rods and pistons.

REMOVE THE COCKPIT ON THE ROOF FOR CAB VIEW

The Shay locomotive was invented in 1877 by Ephraim Shay. Although the first shay had a vertical boiler, two pistons and only one truck could swivel. In 1880 Lima Locomotive Works received the right to build Ephraims locomotives. Lima produced four classes of shay, the class A with two pistons and trucks, the class B with three pistons and two trucks, the class C with three pistons and trucks and the class D with three pistons and four trucks. Shay locomotives use a vertical piston engine driving a drive shaft that is connected the wheels by bevel gears. this arrangement allows shays to climb steeper gradients and gives the locomotive a high power to weight ratio, increasing their appeal to logging and mining railroads involving steep grades and rough track. After many of the key components patents expired it was possible for other manufactures to produce shay type locomotives. However, the name Shay was a trademark of Lima so the other manufactures had to name their "shay clones" differently. The locomotives built by the Willamette Iron and Steel Works were called Willamettes. The last shay to be built was Western Maryland No.6, weighing in at 150 tonnes it is the largest shay ever built. It now operates on the Cass Scenic Rail Road. In total only 118 shays survive.

Working cab controls and 2 types of braking with steam and smoke.
To make Train Mod compatible: set the trucks rotator speed to 0.

Landing Gear = train brake,
VTOL = oil injection,
Throttle = water injection,
Roll = steering,
AG1 = front headlight,
AG2 = rear headlight
