Hello I am selling of a collection of 40+ years of rr equipment and am unsure of how to proceed. I really do not want to scrap anything! so I thought a list would be a good place to start.
a 1919 baldwin 0-6-0 steam locomotive originally a sugar cane loco in the Philippines 3' gauge
2 Woodings speeder cars 1CBI and 1CBL standard gauge
1 Fairmont 2 cycle speeder with fiberglass cab m19 I think standard gauge
1 Fairmont "kit" speeder (unassembled by previous owner) mt19? standard gauge
1 Fairmont speeder mt14? standard gauge
2 track miles of GN68 rail with otm approx 250-300 tons
All of this is located north of Republic Washington about 20 miles south of Canada and 150 miles northeast of Spokane Wa.
Any suggestions on how to proceed would be greatly appreciated. I would rather not engage in any lengthy discussions with tire kickers. no offense meant.
Thanks in advance, Carl Stevens

Track gauge, please and any additional information on weight, condition, access, loading out etc would help people decide if they would like to pursue it. Sometimes the removal costs more than the hardware is worth...... you have found a great place to find interested parties.

Photos and prices first, no offense but one does not want to waste time dealing with delusional sellers either.

List the stuff wherever you can, FB marketplace, Craigslist, eBay, etc.

Never mind the pre internet geezers that insist you list it on a railroad related forum. Plenty of rolling stock and collectibles get listed on these sites and sold.

Consider an auction.

The speeders can be posted on Railspeeders.com. Plenty of activity on that website.

A little more info I managed to "dig up" here in my mess of stuff.
Baldwin class #6-12 D-69-70(this was for HP #1&2) constructed August 1919 Total Engine weight 26,700 lbs wheelbase 6'9". Cylinders 9x16. I will try to post some photos soon. As for price, we would like to get $25,000. That would include the engine, tender, and a bunch of parts. We do have the Baldwin spec sheet and a print from Baldwin negative # 5985, but I doubt they would scan well enuf to post.

Sent you a private message. I've got a friend in western WA who is very interested.
