- Dear Ed,
The MDC HO shay mech is a much closer match in size to the Mapleton
shays, than the On30 Bachmann 15 ton "CN122" shay is.
When you get your next set of "Back Issue" NGDU magazines, have a
look at the recent articles by Mark Fry on building small shays, in
the article series "Between the Lines".
