Tollie, No. 7, a gear-driven Shay steam locomotive used by the Simpson Logging Company railroad around Shelton, Washington, is currently on static display in the center of Shelton.
The Simpson Logging Company operated and maintained an extensive network of 80 miles of track used to haul timber out of the surrounding mountains and to the mills in Shelton. These rail lines were in continual use for 120 years and became the last privately owned logging railroad in operation in the continental United States.
Lima Locomotive Works of Lima, Ohio, built 2,761 Shay locomotives between 1880 and 1945. Tollie, No. 7, was one of 20 Shays constructed in 1924.
