Lima Shay
Logging Locomotive

These locomotives were built specifically to haul
lumber. They were designed by Ephriam Shay
and built in Lima Ohio. Because all of the wheels
on a Shay were driven by the engine, they had
superior traction and pulling power, perfect for
hauling lumber on tracks in hilly uneven terrain.

This is a Class B Shay with a three cylinder and
two truck design. The original cab was made of
wood but during the restoration it was replaced
with steel.

This Lima Shay was acquired by the Shevlin-Clarke
Company in 1912 and used to transfer logs from
West Clearwater Lake to Turtle Lake from 1913 to
1924. Once the logs were in Turtle Lake they could
be floated down to the mills in Fort Frances.

In 1963, this locomotive was found abandoned in
the bush. Bill Perunialk and a group of volunteers
including Warren Peterson, Karl Hanse, Graham
Cox, and Duane Perusse arranged to move the relic
to the Caland shops where the community joined
forces to help restore it. At first it was displayed
near where the Museum is now located. Later, it was
moved to its current location at the Historical Park.
This locomotive became the first artifact acquired
by the Atikokan Centennial Museum.
