Clishay Live Steam Logging Locomotive SOLD ON EBAY
Clishay Live Steam Logging Locomotive I have owned this 7-1/2 gauge Clishay logging locomotive for about seven years and it has always run very well. The overall dimensions of the locomotive are 44" long x 12" wide x 38" to the top of the stack. Features include a Worthington steam pump, 2 pop-off valves set at 100 lbs and an excellent working injector. The boiler runs very well with wood or coal. Other working parts on this locomotive are a steam whistle, head light, brass bell, forward and reverse gears, manual hand-operated brakes and a stack blower. The tender dimensions are 36" long x 12" wide and 16' high. Bob Maynard wrote articles for Live Steam Magazine and originated the Clishay project in 1977. The name "Clishay" comes from combining Climax and Shay. He drew up the plans, wrote the articles and built a locomotive, all of which took about a year. This locomotive was completed about ten years ago using Bob Maynard's plans.
