Narrow gauge logging

I would change those to links, unless they're on your website you're stealing bandwidth other people are paying for.

Yes I saw one of Yosemotie's (Did I spell that right?) shays, I watched that thing come a roarin' up that grade, and I'll never forget it! Before that I disliked shays, but now I'm a devoted shay fan. (I have yet to get a shay model however... they're just too darn expensive in HOn3) But how I would have loved to have gotten a cab ride! I'll have to go back someday.

I don't have any picture since the closest Narrow Gauge to me is either the EBT or Cass.

By the way, Hello to the fellow Mountaineer up above!

That would be the EBT--Cass is standard gauge :eek:

The New Jersey Museum of Transportation has some narrow gauge--a Quincy and Torch Lake 2-8-0(outside frame, unrestored), an Ely-Thomas Shay, and a few other pieces of equipment(I've never been there, just heard about it).
The Connecticut Antique Tractor Association(or something like that) has a 3-foot-gauge 2-4-2 from Hawaii with a few D&RGW gondolas on a short track, along with a display of an Argent Lumber Company 2-8-0--somewhere else I wish to visit at some point.
The Hesston Steam Museum in Hesston, Indiana(northwestern) has the Shay that ran on the Rio Grande Southern, along with a large 2-foot-gauge collection. I've never been there, EITHER(though I have been within five miles of it....), but I hear it's really cool.

I believe there's some more that I've missed--anyone care to fill in the blanks?

It was quite awesome--I only rode upgrade, but that was the fantastically cool part. Being oil-fired, the fireman pretty much just sat, other than opening/closing the injector. It was LOUD! I also got a cab ride on/off the turntable in the Western Maryland's 2-8-0, but that was a LONG time ago and, being standard gauge, a bit boring! :)
