I have been waiting for the shays to be released and there latest is supposed to be in February of 2011. I was able to find a couple on line used and found something i do like. I have one #41623 Pennsylvania power & light co #B. This one came with a wood tender and the oil tender is with it. The other one is # 41627, Painted unlettered and has the oil tender and i would love to find a wood tender for it. Atlas doesn't seem to make or stock them. I am wondering who did make them and where i can get one? Any help would be wonderful, Smokey

There hasn't been a production wood powered shay from Atlas. Many people have removed the oil tank and replaced it with a wood load. I can't remember if it is a seprate part or you need to cut out the oil tank though.

The fuel oil bunker is only held on with one screw, from underneath. Atlas does not have a wood or coal bunker.

But it's not that impossible to do. I modified mine to take out the "Pacific Coast" all-weather cab and put in a coal bunker to make it a little more eastern-typical:



There's a lot of Dremel work there to do that, but I really like the look.
