The Shay # 5

This the Shay Locomotive # 5. This is a coal-fired, steam train engine that was specially designed to haul lumber out of the mountains on uneven, steep and unstable rail. The design of the engine earned its inventor, Ephraim Shay, more money than the logging business with which he designed it to be used.
