Shaw Logging Railroad #100 ~ s/n unknown
Built prior to 06/1902 ~ 2 trucks


The locomotive, owned by the Shaw Brothers Lumber Co., operated near Prairie River,
Saskatchewan, Canada.

This company is not known to have owned a Shay locomotive per the current (09/2021) generally accepted Shay ownership records.  As a result, the shop number (s/n) is unknown and except for the locomotive being a "Class B", the other builder's details remain unknown as well.   A review of the locomotive's physical characteristics seen in the photo by George R. Kadelak of the Shaylocomotives.com site leads him to believe the locomotive's shop number was less than 700.   This indicates the build date was prior to 06/1902.   The text in the photo of the bronze plaque at left notes the company operated in the area of the Saskatchewan town of Prairie River from 1906-1917 using one "Class B" Shay.  The text in this source, indicates the company ceased operations in 1920 and operated two "Class B" Shays.
