after the crash of my Resita loco some weeks ago, it took only a few days to get the rough warp repaired, but it took several more days to get the loco back into perfect operational condition.
In the past days, I disassembled and re-assembled the loco several times, fixing many small issues from the crash and others. Finally, I managed to bring her back to perfect smooth operation.
This week, the Resita was in duty on a work train to ballast tracks.
this week, I like to share the photos from the August operation session on our club layout. I ran my whole 1:7.2 scaled log train and had a great day. Most time, I was the only “show train” running on the inner loop, so I was able to enjoy very slow speed running of my Shay locomotive, and even some special maneuvers like running in opposite direction and tender ahead.
I got additional support by my friend Tim, who also made most of the photos below.
Hello Shay lovers,
on July 17th, Ephraim Shay would have celebrated his 180th birthday. His birthday is celebrated each year at Harbor Springs during the “Shay-Days”. I jumped on the event at my garden railroad and operated my live steam Shay with some ordinary supply and freight trains. Here’s a collection of photos, taken during the operation session.
