Remarks & Notes 
Woodstock Lumber Company #5. Hidden away in the engine shed at Clark's Trading Post for all but about 2 days each year, is New Hampshire's only Shay Locomotive. This little 50-ton, 2-Trucker was built in 1917 by the Lima Locomotive Works for the Woodstock Lumber Company, in Woodstock, NH. She served that operation for many years, along with two other Shays of similar size. Eventually, Woodstock Lumber became the Franconia Paper Company, which held onto the engine until the end of its working career. She was acquired by the Clark Brothers for their White Mountain Central Railroad operation in the early 1950s, but alas, she had been ridden hard and put away wet. Of the 5 engines at Clark's Trading Post, this is the only one that has never been restored to operation. As can be seen in this photo, she is in pretty rough-looking condition, and would need some serious attention before she could move without a diesel pushing her. Fortunately, she is kept under cover 363 days a year, so her condition is at least stable. She is typically brought out for display at the White Mountain Central's annual "Railroad Days" event.
