    Bob's suggestion would be my first. The Keystone is available in HO, HOn3, and HOn30.

    A way to get a 3 truck Shay static model kit is to find and build a Roundhouse 3 truck kit version - it also came in both HO and HOn3 versions. It is now out of production, so you'll have to hunt one down from the usual suspects - eBay and hobby shops. Unless a real effort was made during construction, the Roundhouse Shay often didn't run very well or for very long. So that is one way to get your static 3 truck Shay. :)
