Loco is a Centerfold
Does she run? Does she pull?
Does she come complete?
Loco is a centerfold
(J Geils Band sang something like that)

Hope you don't mind....Here are two pics of the other side.
My Old 620 Box camera took these in July of 1964 at Hill City, SD.

Beautiful locomotive. Shay's are fascinating and sound great. They can be tough to run from a schedule standpoint for many operations because they are slow.

They shouldn't be that hard to schedule, they run at one speed and it's not exactly quick. But it is constant!
