I saw an impressive collection of steam powered machinery at the Hesston Steam Museum in La Porte, Indiana. They were running four trains when I visited: a pair of two footers and two 14 inchers. The European two foot gauge locomotive pulled a train of three foot gauge cars.

La Porte is the other end of the state, but that is a nice collection. I'd take a couple of them. Is that at Shay?

Yes, that is a Shay! The museum is well worth the trip. They have a lot of other steam powered equipment too, such as a crane, sawmill, stationary engines, hoists, traction engines, etc.
