    Hi folks.
    I'm in the middle of a major project with the Overland Western Maryland Shay brass steamer.
    Been perfecting these for years, and most recently adding sound.

    The N Scale Enthusiast magazine has contacted me about possibly writing an article for them about this interesting loco (Overland's first in N scale).

    However.... I could use some help to do it justice. I own the Shays that were modded and sold by Keith Wiseman.

    What I don't have is the original run Shay as OMI released it (with the giant gear in the rear truck under the cab). That would be the 1st version.

    I also don't have a stock Shay from OMI after the recall. That would be the 2nd version.

    My two Shays would be 3rd versions.

    So if you have an original Shay or an unmodified Shay that you got after the recall, please message me.
    Thanks,
    Ron
