Thanks to HMEM for all the great information that has been very usefull as I try to learn machining.
I am still learning how to navigate and use the HMEM site, but it is a great resource for beginners like myself.

A hearty welcome Pat !!

Thanks for preserving AND continuing your father's legacy. You've stepped into his shoes and are continuing with his love of making engines and models.

You won't find a better groups of folks anywhere else on the net Feel free to ask all kinds of questions, people here are very willing to share the experiences (good and bad) to help others out.

Mike

Welcome Pat. You have a very nice site there. I have spent a fair amount of time there and there is a lot of info.

I'm sure you are up to the task of learning machining, the desire is there and helps a lot.

Hi Pat,
Welcome to HMEM. We crossed paths on the web sometime ago. Did you ever make any progress on the Stanley Steamer engine?

Pat,
You asked the right guy about Shay locomotives. The photo is shop number 3296. This is a small class B Shay with a 3-8"x12" engine, the interesting part is that it is boiler with a superheater. The pipe leading to the smokebox is steam to the engine when it originates from the smokebox it is coming from the superheater. That is unusual for a Shay and especially for a small Shay.

The other Vestal Shay with a close road number was #107 this one had a 3-10"x10" engine and is S/N 3284.

Lima had a well equiped photo dept. and those guys were really good at taking locomotive and equipment photographs.

The other photos have to be the Vestal lumber operation but the bottom one with the sheds looks a bit like the Lima Works so I had to take a close look.

Pat -

Thanks so much for sharing this information. You could hardly bore us with what you have presented here and, in fact, you are helping to preserve some of the knowledge of what others have done. At one point much of this info on steam engines was normal, everyday stuff, but now most of it is in danger of being lost because it is assumed that someone else has preserved it somewhere. (Computers aren't that old, but there is still much info that is forever lost...)

Wish I had more information about the pictures a friend used to have from when ALCO (American Locomotive Corp.) had its huge plant in Dunkirk NY, a few mile from where I grew up. He had some newspaper pictures with 20 or more of the large 4-8-8-4 locomotives all on the shop floor at the same time in various stages of production. An I think that was just 1 shop...

That is interesting about the superheat.

Did you ever build a small Shay?
Do you have a website?

Pat
