Larry Simoneau's  Kozo Shay Locomotive

4 March 2006

I went to Larry's home today to look at a South Bend Heavy 10 lathe that he is selling and I was interested in.  While there I took a few photos of his Shay loco and another loco he had in the basement.

Yes, I bought the lathe and now have to wait for the snow to melt from in front of my basement bulkhead doors to get it home.  It is a bit scruffy looking but seems to be in good mechanical condition and sprucing it up will be an interesting project.
