    8%! Wow! Shamus, any more of an incline and you'll have to start using cog locomotives!

    That is outstanding Shamus!
    But y'know everyone seems to be concerned with that engine climbing that grade...
    What about that poor photographer having to climb that tree with his gear? :D

    It's great to see just how those loggers get the lumber moved around. That donkey is working its heart out.
    Great photo Shamus my friend.

    I love these shots "from the inside," Shamus! They make it seem that one is immersed in a real world that doesn't end at the edge of a table...

    I've been drooling over that photo (again).
    Sheeeese, I can even smell the pitch pine and bark, fabulous!

    I'm still puzzled at the diesel enthusiasts marvelling at the incredible feats our sidewinders can handle :) .

    I've ridden behind a Shay in Georgetown Colorado. It goes up slopes like they are on the flat...... and the haunting sound of it's whistle echoing down the valley in the crisp early morning air ... talk about nostalgia? Out of this world! It's memories such as these that will live with me forever.

    Thank's again for sharing

    Errol,
    It's only when you've been in the presence of an operating sidewinder, that you begin to understand the fascination of Shays. I had the extreme good fortune, or, considering the addiction, the evil luck, to cab ride the shay at the illinois Railway Museum, in Union Il.. A unique experience which could only be topped by someday getting the chance to throttle up an articulated steam loco.( UP 3985 would be good)
