  • This is a metal kit of a Class B, 30-40 Ton Shay Locomotive and designed to run on N guage track While not based on any particular prototype, the kit contains enough detail parts to create your own version of a wood, coal or oil fired locomotive. This kit contains brass photo-etched details, Micro-Trains Link and Pin drawbars and Fox Valley 28" metal wheels (for the front truck).

    It is designed to operate using the V.2 9 mm Searails Powermax mechanism. We highly recommend purchasing this motor from Z Scale Monster Trains. Anthony is a pleasure to work with. Here is his link. Z Scale Monster Trains Searails Power Max Motor

    By permission from Searails, we do include the Rotation Connector in this kit.

    Read an interview by John Cubbin with Walter over at Raildig about this Shay. This is an interview on the Nn3 version,but most points apply to this N Scale version as well.---

    Please click on the "Instructions" tab for a great review by David Jones.

    The Nn3 version of this locomotive is also a featured article in N Scale Magazine July/August 2015 Edition (volume 27 number 4). The seven page article, The Short & Nn3arrow, is authored by Thomas Knapp and features many colorful photos of a step by step build and his unique artistic touches to this detailed kit designed by Walter. He also does a review and "how to" procedure on JAX Pewter Black to blacken this model kit. A picture of this particular magazine cover is posted here, and you may obtain a copy by calling 360-658-2485 with a credit card number or mailing a check for $6.75 to N-Scale Magazine at
