Re: Roaring Camp Locomotive #6 "Daisey"

February 09, 2020 07:47AM
The engine that will one day be Roaring Camp's #6, "Daisy" is a 32 ton, class B Shay with 8" X 12" cylinders, a nearly 2:1 gear ratio, and 29" drivers. The locomotive's boiler and wheel centers need to be replaced and extensive mechanical rehabilitation undertaken. The engine house team has always felt the #6 would make a great winter engine, taking the smaller trains up and down the mountain while the larger locomotives get heavy maintenance for the upcoming season. When the Climax is completed there will, hopefully, be resources, facilities, and a cadre of volunteers ready to take on the next restoration project. The board of the RWH Foundation will decide what project to take on next, but I suspect #6 will make the short list.
