Illawarra Light Railway Society Shay Project
(11-15-2000) from: Richard Wilson, Australia
The I. L. R. M. S. Ltd. has the remains of the two Munro Tramway Shays, 906 & 2097 as well as a few bogie parts from 2800 and other steam loco parts. The plan was to make an operational 2' gauge Shay, with most parts from sn-906. Project not completed.

(2014) The parts from sn-2097 were returned to Palmtree area for a static display along the original tramway line.

(2016) Rebuild project for 906 apparently abandoned years ago.
The sn-906 boiler went to Palmtree in 2014 while the sn-2097 bolier remains in Wollongong
