This Shay geared locomotive was one of 2,768 Locomotives built by the Lima Locomotive Works of Lima Ohio between 1880 and 1945 (only 116 of these engines still exist and only 20-25% of those engines are in operable condition). These locomotives (named after it's inventor Ephraim Shay) were designed to climb steep grades (up to 12%), sharp curves, and were ideal for logging railroads where steep grades and temporary tracks were the rule.
