Class 'A' Climax Tyson, Now that's my kinda 'N' scale logging loco! Great looking little engine. Greg, I did understand that the Shay is going to be a split frame, cast alloy and plastic but I still have to wonder where the price will come in. I guess we can bet it will be manufactured in China (what isn't these days?) but it just seems like it would be pretty labor intensive with all of the tiny turning shafts and gears. I did have a HO logging road a decade or so ago and built a couple of MDC Shays and it wasn't all that easy to get things smoothed out and running good. Atlas' Manufacturing Engineering guys are going to have a fun time with that one. I'm getting off the point here but has anyone noticed the variance in quality with Bachmann 'N' scale 2-8-0's? Some run great right out of the box others require minor to major tweaking to smooth them out. I wish Atlas the best of luck on the project because it sure would be great to have an affordable N Shay. Although I kinda like Tyson's Class 'A'.
