As we continue our efforts to consolidate our collection at the Marter Yard site, we have decided that three pieces of rolling stock no longer fit into our plans. These three pieces are now available for sale and are located in Struthers and Youngstown, OH.

The first is a wooden caboose. Originally built for the Bessemer & Lake Erie then sold to the Youngstown & Southern. It is in poor condition but the right person could restore it. All of the metal hardware is accounted for.

The second item is a 45' long Pressed Steel flatcar. Similar to the PRR FM flatcars except five feet longer. Has arch bar trucks and K type brakes. Ideal for an early 20th century photo freight.

The third item is a former Erie Lackawanna Pullman troop sleeper that has been converted to a camp car. This was part of the first order of troop sleepers built and originally had the center stairwells. The interior has been subdivided and was last used by the EL signal dept. The outer shell, roof and underframe is all in good condition. Equipped with Allied Full Cushion Trucks. Weighs 76,000 lbs.

If interested in any of these pieces, please send a message to me. We have a deadline of the end of this year to sell and remove the cars. We do not want to see these scrapped. We will entertain any offer that results in a fate other than scrapping.
