Whether or not you're into Logging prototypes, you'll have to admit that the Mechanical Marvels, (SHAY Locomotives - Nicknamed "Sidewinders" by the guys who worked with them in the woods...) offered by the LIMA Locomotive Company were a sight to behold...

On this page you'll find icons (small photos) which you can click on for enlarged views of these. Please be aware that we have NONE of these on hand at the present time. We will, however, be producing a run of three truckers which will include:
  • New Mexico Lumber Company's Shay #7, which later became the
  • Oregon Lumber Company's #7,
  • Plus the #6 of the Swayne Lumber Company, which later became
  • West Side Lumber Company's #12 spot.
All in Lifetime Brass, and all in very limited quantities .

Although these shays had the appearance of a "Pacific Coast" Shay, they were considerably smaller in real life.

As a matter of fact they were a full 5'-1" shorter than West Side Lumber Co's #8, #9 and #10!

But boy, howdy, did they have the LOOK! Chunky to the max is what they were all about...
