Passenger car collectors, tourist railroads, and others now have the opportunity to bid on passenger cars, flat cars, and other pieces of equipment through a new online portal. There are a total of 127 railcars available for bid.
Interested parties will have the chance to bid on multiple pieces of equipment at once using a pull-down menu on a newly created web page. The page includes a spreadsheet-like format that shows car specifications, builder information, and built-date, as well as reporting marks and images of each railcar.
The deadline to bid is by the close of business on Friday, March 10.
Feld managers are also assembling a list of running gear parts for passenger equipment. That inventory will be able for bid in the coming days.
The company’s circus trains will continue touring for another two-and-a-half months before the equipment is deadheaded to a to-be-determined location for disposition to winning bidders in late May.
