Hi -- thanks for writing to NCpedia with this question about the locomotive engine "Shay".

"Shay" is located at the North Carolina Transportation Museum in Spencer, North Carolina.  Following restoration at the museum in the late 1980s, it was used to pull the museum's on-site train ride for a number of years.  According to the museum's website, it is currently not in service while being overhauled.

You can find more information on the museum's website at

Thanks for your question!
