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 these have been long since sold out...  However, there's always the possibility that one might come back in a trade..  Keren keeps a running list of "wants" so if you're in the market for any particular model, ask her to add you to her list..

The 37 Tonners arrived in 2018..

- 60 TON 3 TRUCK SHAYS ! -
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...

    Note that these models were imported back in 1992, so the photos aren't as "tight" as the stuff we're capable of these days, but they're still not too shabby, especially if you're a fan of the West Side!  Just sayin'...
