Faithful reproduction of the unusual side rod transmission of the real locomotive...
It's not only looking good, it works! Exquisite! 
And the caboose is also a very quality and detailed work. The whole train looks great!!
Thanks for bringing it to our attention, Super!

The same person made a Garratt that runs in both directions and a Schienenzeppelin (a.k.a. Hugo) that's driven by the propeller. The only Plarail compatible Shay I recall seeing before was made from a Thomas body, Ferdinand's bufferbeam and an Emily tender, but this is a million times more sophisticated and faithful to the original. Like Mister No wrote, they did a genious job recreating how the pistons operate. It's a real "Shay"me TOMY would most likely not do it in an official version, given how talented its product designers are. Would've been totally awesome if there were a localized range like Tomica World, only with more American prototypes. Those Japanese customizers are so gifted I've wanted to start a megathread about their creations. Problem is, it would be too hard to keep track because of all the (outstanding) work they've done over the years. If this is possible, then it wouldn't surprise me if anyone built a Darjeeling Himalayan B Class like it. Thanks for sharing.

P.S.: please correct "Cassianic Railway" to Cass Scenic Railroad State Park.
