Here is my Aster 2 truck Shay from the 1978 production run. Mine is the Americanized version, the other being the Alishan Forest Railway(which is the prototype) of this 28 ton Shay. A bit fast(typical Aster trait), but I was busy filming and his railway is not level in places, so I didn't want to stall and have a flare up. RC control of throttle and valve gear is planned using micro servos. Enjoy!

This engine is actually for sale/trade as my home railway is more Euro narrow gauge than logging.
