    Greenville & Western's former B&O GP-9 3751 takes a rest in Belton, SC on 09/03/2021. It's hard to see, but the herald on the nose honors the shortline's heritage, the electrified Piedmont & Northern.

    The #10 sat in the open for a while, before they built a roof overhead. I saw her that way fifty years ago. I am happy she is sheltered, but she is now difficult to photograph.

    Did you also see the Shay in Port Angeles?

    I'm guessing this was shot sometime between late April and early June. Down off the mountain and getting their going over before being sent back to the snow equipment tracks. And of course only within the last 3+ years, because they all have their PTC and new bigger windows.

    The photo was taken just a few weeks ago from the tail end of the California Zephyr on September 24th. Maybe they were in Roseville getting ready for a lot of snow this winter. They sure need snow after the drought they have been having.

    Unfortunately she is in the open and also exposed to salt water air. What you saw is slightly better than several years ago. She was becoming overgrown with brush. A small group got together and cleared much away, and did some cleaning up on her.

    now I am kicking myself for not stopping and looking at the Port Angeles loco, it was not a Shay, but a Willamette

    True that it was not built by Shay themselves.

    These were Shay copies built after the patent expired. They looked exactly as a Shay, except they had some major alterations designed by Willamette Iron & Steel Works. (Cylinder positioning and locations, cabs, welded boilers, etc.) The company was sited in Portland, Oregon, and was is named after the Willamette River Valley which their home in Portland was at it's northern end. The Willamette was actually superior to a Lima built and Shay themselves eventually copied, some into their own "Pacific Coast" versions. There was at least one other company which built a few Shays under license from Shay.
