Wheelsets are still looking for a good home....... your choice for the low, low price of $150 each, scrappers need not apply... Loading onto the conveyance of your choice included in sales price.

Dan,

Yes, wheelsets are standard gauge. They came out of the ruins of the Rock Island Shops in Horton Kansas.
