Shay No. 11 Again by JoeHundredaire Shay No. 11 Again by JoeHundredaire
Another picture Cass Scenic Railroad #11 coming around the curve near the water tower, eager to pick up some coal before its first run of the day. Comes from about 15-20 seconds later in the image sequence than the first shot I posted. Weighing in at a whopping 103 tons, CSRR #6 is the only larger Shay in Cass. Actually, as best I can tell from research, CSRR #11 is the second largest surviving Shay still in operation, period.

1923: Built as an oil burner and sold as Hutchinson Lumber Company #3
1927: Became Feather River Pine Mills #3
1967: Acquired by Pacific Southwest Railway Museum
1998: Acquired by Cass and renumbered to #11 to avoid confusion
2001: Converted to burn coal

Thanks. I took this right before I loaded up on #11 for my cab ride. :)

My license plate reads "LIMASHAY", my e-mail address is shay_man@********* and I am seriously considering getting a Lima Diamond builder's plate tattoo. Do I need to spell out any more than that how much I love this photo of sn3221. An excellent addition to the Cass loco roster and a particularly fine photo. I love the way the mist hangs in the valley partially obscuring the tank. It took me a moment or two to figure out what all those streaks were on the right side of the photo until I discovered they were discarded rail. Correct me if I'm wrong, but the rail just to the right of the stack is on the coaling track? Needless to say you made my day.

There's actually no 'mist' per say; the cloud behind the engine is actually steam and smoke from when #11 backed out off the siding it'd been stored on overnight, disappearing around the curve before coming back forward. And you're right about coaling. From left to right, you have the track heading into the shops (the one that's got some pavement on it), then the through track (barely visible), and then the one that #11 is on that runs in so the locomotives can be fueled while other trains are running in and out of the area.
