Eight 5-1/2"x 10" journal bearings. They show hardly any wear on the Babbitt.

Two 3" gate valves for 125 lb or less service. I believe these are new, old stock.

Proceeds to go to the restoration of Alaska Railroad #557.

FYI, as far as I know the markings on those valves (125 S / 200 CWP) stand for 125 psi Steam / 200 psi Cold Working Pressure.

So they are OK for cold or hot water up to 200 psi. For Steam service they are limited to 125 psi.

Probably related to the valve stem packing material and not the valve body itself.

New ones with similar ratings go for about $75.

Also, most new valves are marked "200 WOG" which stands for Water Oil Gas. These valves also have lower ratings for steam pressure.
