Model railroad shay locomotive model,its the last train home in your eyes lyrics,polar express train joliet - You Shoud Know

Well, when I got home I quickly designed a very simple 10-wide bogie, but I couldn't find any way to actually drive the wheels via the drive shafts and still be able to take sharp LEGO corners, and so other projects overtook the Shay.
This is my first 10-wide locomotive, although I have dabbled in 10-wide before with my breakdown crane. The tender connects to the loco via an axle fitting into the hole of a Plate 3 x 2 with Hole. The bogies are based on the ones by Ben B, but I wasn't happy with them being held on by just a single 12 tooth bevel gear.
The hand rails on the sides of the boiler are Evergreen 3.2mm tubing, painted with Tamiya black gloss (X-1) Acrylic model paint. Well, after finishing an LDraw file for this locomotive, I decided to try to render it using POVray.

While steam locomotives are completely outside of my normal modeling type and era (modern CSX), I have a long held fascination with Shay Locomotives in particular and logging lines in general. I therefore couldn't resist the opportunity to buy a Keystone Locomotives 2 Truck Shay Kit on our local auction site. I also found a couple of online blogs where people had documented their build of these kits.
I love shays, and by the way, welcome to the pinnacle of challenge - geared, side drive locos.

I’ve included a few links on shays and related logging gear, but first consider the fact that you will need weight to have better traction.
The MDC Shay Handbook by Jeff Johnston (Oso Publishing Co.) is a nice primer on H0 scale shays. The one thing that is clear is that I have a lot of learning to do and some decisions to make before starting the build. Neither the service provider nor the domain owner maintain any relationship with the advertisers.
The main problem was how to make realistic looking drive shafts that actually rotated when the train moves.
The crankshaft arrangement, and much of the greebling atop the boiler is based on his model. Shays, especially larger ones, were designed this way to offset the weight of the cylinders and transmission shaft.
Using Technic 1x1 bricks, I was able to keep the bogie frame to 9 wide, and was pretty pleased with how it turned out.
One inside the boiler drives the 2 front bogies and the crankshaft, the other in the tender drives the rear bogie. But inspired by Lewis Valentine's Shay #5, I did more detailing than usual on this loco. I do not intend to rush this so the build may take some considerable time and a great deal of care as the parts are extremely fragile.

This might ultimately modify the look or proportions of the Keystone kit you are starting from.
Way to give a new guy encouragement at trying his hand putting together a complicated kit.

And I finally let go the dream of being able to connect all the drive shaft segments, I doubt it is possible without modifying any parts.
So it must be connected to the loco via a single point of rotation - using magnetic connectors would allow it to swing from side to side. It’s tremendously rewarding to achieve success in operating any shay loco, especially from plastic kits. A wire connects the 2 motors, and another wire runs out the back of the tender to connect to a train motor, to get power. Note that the technic motors don't drive as fast as a train motor, so for best performance you need to modify the "pickup" motor by either reducing it's power, or removing it's motor altogether.
