Five Surplus North Carolina DOT to be sold at Auction.

It was announced today that Iron Horse Auction Company of Rockingham, NC is conducting an Online w/Live Bid Center Auction of five surplus North Carolina DOT railroad passenger cars.

Three of the railcars hold some historical significance as they were formerly owned by the Ringling Brothers/Barnum and Bailey Circus. These cars were dormitory cars used to transport members of the circus across the country. The remaining two cars have their own history. One car was a hospital car used by the United States Army and the fifth car was originally a baggage car.  The railcars are currently parked at the Capital Yard in Raleigh and at the Nash County Railroad Corridor.
