Den-

Is that thing as big as it looks?
I don't think that is going to fit in the back of the station wagon.

Hey Pat -click on the website below the picture and you will see the shay being built and then on the tracks.I'm sure Jack must have been a watchmaker in a past life cause the detail and workmanship is incredible!  Den

It is a little smaller than it looks in the photo, but still quite large.

Nice info on construction.

There use to be an amusement part located here, with a large lake, cable cars, a paddle wheel riverboat, rides, and a steam locomotive.
I remember riding around the park on the steam powered train.

The locomotive was called "Huff-n-Puff", and an internet search shows that it ended up in an amusement park called Dry Gulch USA, which is outside Tulsa, Oklahoma.
