A standard gauge Shay locomotive switching a tank car on the Krashnburne Railroad. The Shay is by Ben Neal.

Shays were used on logging railroads because of their ability to run on rough track with tight curves and because of their high power relative to their size. The three cylinders are alongside the boiler drive the bogeys through shafts and bevel gears.

For the curious the route is "Krashnburne", available on the Trainz Download Station.

As I mentioned above, it's best watched in HD and full screen. For those with a slower internet connection, try pausing the video to let most of it load up before playing.
