The  4th and final Climax "type" geared engine produced. Note the missing sand dome on the boiler.  A sand box was mounted in front of the lead axle of the front truck.
shay-t2.jpg (3106 bytes) 5th & final geared engine built. Built 1915  - b/n 41858 17d   Also it is not known if it was ever sold. It was the only Shay type geared engine Baldwin produced. Note the three cylinder heads in the large oval frame opening below the air compressor. The cylinders were mounted horizontally, perpendicular to the boiler and frame, beneath the boiler.  Like the Shay, the drive shaft ran along the right side (opposite from the pictured side).   Power was transferred to the geared wheels on the left-side (shown) via a system of beveled gears and jack shafts.  A maintenance nightmare???
