Blowing the Water Out by Trainman51 Blowing the Water Out by Trainman51
About 10am each morning, the Cass crew backs "Big 6" down past the water tower, Stops for a minute then starts back towards the shops. This is to "Blow the water out" Meaning they are blowing condensation out of the cylinders that has built up over night. Here Big 6 has backed down, stopped and is now starting forwards again. This 120 Ton Shay is the Biggest Shay that was Built.

Not the largest built, the largest remaining, and the last to be built by Lima.

There were heavier 4 truck shays built for the C&O and later sold to the WVP&;P Co.

KCS? Really? Hmm I'll have to look into this! I thought the C&O's where the largest. Built as 150T 3 Truck shay it was converted to a 4 truck by WV Pulp and Paper Co. and became 196T, the largest built.

KCS was largest to leave the factory while Big 6 was the Second largest. as for the 15T 3 truck that was converted at Cass for 4 truck 196T was the largest ever to run. but it was not the largest built by Lima.
