Good morning. In the next weeks, I'll redesign my new Atlas-Shay. I like the old style wood-burner much more then the modern oil-burner. Here are some ideas : - Set the couplers closer to the frame - New ballon stack - Conversion to woodburner - New open woodpanel cab - Detailing - Weathering The first to steps are almost done. The stack is homemade on my lathe out of brass. After removing the couplers, I've used a knife to cut of the rear part at the screw-hole. I've drilled the screw-holes in the frame to the diameter of the small pin on top of the coupler-box and glued this to the frame. The result can be seen on the pictures above. But there is one problem... to remove the trucks from the frame, you have to remove the couplers. I've seen this after converion and was not so happy about this :-( But the Shay looks quite better than before. Next step will be the new cab and tender.
