October 22, 2012 - Logging Locomotive Meet Videos

John Buckwalter posted a video of his shay going up the logging line - see . He asked one of the young local engineers to operate his shay while he shot the video. John has a website where he describes his shay in more detail. Mike Green sent a couple short videos of the same engineer starting a small standard gauge 3 cylinder shay on a ~3% grade; see Shay1 and Shay2. It will be interesting to see if some of the rod engines can navigate the logging line as easily as these shays --- the blow down meet this weekend will be a good opportunity.
