Manufacturer: Golden West Books
Shays, Shays, and more Shays. The Pacific Coast Shay, with nearly 8000 pounds more tractive power than the standard offering, was introduced in 1927. It was an effort by Lima to stave off what eventually occured- elimination of rail in the logging of large stands of timber. Although there were 800 or more Shays in use on the Pacific Coast, their peak had already been seen by the time the Pacific Coast Shay was introduced. The book chronicles Shay history, from their invention by Ephraim Shay, and through their golden years. The book is heavy on photographs, diagrams, rosters, and Shay advertisements. Great book for the Shay fan. Hard cover, 112 pages. 

This is a USED Book. The condition is Fair.   The dust jacket shows wear and is split in several places, but it's all there.  There is black ink in one spot on the page edges. Agood reader's copy, but not for the collector.

About Shipping Charges:

With few exceptions, we ship with U. S. Postal Service.

However, because of the shape and dimensions of  items vary, we can’t calculate in advance an exact shipping charge. The total seen at checkout time is the MAXIMUM you will be charged.  It may be adjusted downward if we find we can ship in a way that provides the same level of service at a lower rate.  If the amount you have paid is less than the amount needed to ship by the best method, we pay the difference.  You will not pay any more than what you were charged at checkout.  The Regional Priority Flat Rate service of the USPS is what we use for most domestic addresses.  Often we will not be able to select the best shipping method until the order is pulled from inventory, weighed, and an appropriate box size is chosen.  The mix of items in the order can affect the choice of shipping method, as well.  In some cases the dimensions of the package will affect the rate. 

The amount charged on your order is the most you will be charged.  We always will try to select the lowest cost and best shipment method for your order.  If we are able to ship for a lower cost than you were charged, we will refund any overpayment that amounts  to more than $1.00. 

When we get a discounted commercial rate, the savings are passed on to you.  We do not try to make money on shipping or handling fees.  We sell books and magazines- not postage.

About International Shipping Charges:

We are a bit limited in the choice of international shipping methods.  Occasionally we find that we can use International Flat Rate Priority Mail to lower your shipping and handling costs..  When that is possible, the same policy is followed as in domestic shipping.  If the package can be shipped for a lower amount than was charged at checkout, any amount of US$1.00 or more will be refunded to your credit card or PayPal account.  As with domestic sales, the amount you are charged on checkout is the most you will pay.  We adjust charges down, but not up.
