I'm trying to find a museum or an organization that needs parts for a two truck Lima-Shay. I am part of a project at the Canada Science & Technology Museum that is ceaning up their surplus railway collection. The parts parts are deemed surplus to the museum's needs and they would love to transfer the said parts to a museum or organization that would find a need for them.

There are other parts from the Shay parts that could be useful in other steam applications, please have a look at the photos.

Also included but not photograph is a horizontal main crankshaft.

Hi Archbar,

Thanks for the heads up!

I’m sure I’m not the only one who would like to know if all the Nathan injectors are the same size and if so what size are they?
Do all the items have to go as one lot to one organization or can items be requested individually?

Thanks again,
