UPDATE: The auction will now end on August 5th. The video of the train is now available. Train expert John Yowler said that it is fireable & operable. Needs some minor maintenance on some lines and packing glands.
Yellow Springs, OH- The Lewis family is offering their Amusement Train ride for sale by online auction. The train was purchased in Cincinnati by Mr. Lewis over 50 years ago. Mr. Lewis would blow the train whistle, ring the bell and the neighbor kids would all come running to take a ride on the train that was set up in his own yard. Take a look in the photos for an idea of how the train track was set up! The complete train set includes a Cagney Class D 15" Gauge Steam Locomotive, Gas-powered Yard Locomotive (8hp Briggs & Stratton), Coal Tinder Car, (2) 3-Bench Passenger Cars and 600+ feet of track (43 Straight Pieces, 18 Ft. & 26 Curved Pieces,18 Ft.), a homemade switch, connectors & many spikes! This is a rare opportunity to own your own train! The steam engine was last run 4 years ago. The family shut it down, blew out all the lines with compressed air and have stored the cars in the garage. This train is in great shape! The passenger cars have been restored and are ready to go! This is the train lover's dream!

6) AUTO EXTEND FEATURE - Please note when bidding, there is an auto-extend feature on this online auction system. The auto-extend feature time frame is set by the auction company. For this example the auto-extend feature is set at 5 minutes - If someone bids in the last 5 minutes immediately prior to the end of the auction on that item, the online auction system will automatically extend the bidding time for a 5 minute increment (and will continue to do so) until there is a 5 minute period (after the original closing time) where no one bids, then the auction on that item will close. This feature will leave the bidding open for any item that has received a bid within the last 5 minutes prior to close and from the last recorded bid time, even if the ending time has been reached. This feature has been added to eliminate sniping and to make the online bidding process fairer and to resemble a 'live' auction. Keep in mind that seconds are not recorded with bid entries. A bid recorded at 5:30 and 40 seconds will have a recorded bid time of 5:30. Bid & refresh immediately and often.
