We have 3 or 4 of these flatcars, they are 2ft gauge, and have small wheels under them.

this is a pile of 3" track. I'm guessing around 30 pieces? 20-25ft long?

several small axles and wheels, I think they are all 2ft gauge, and some 2" track. 10-15 pieces here. we have another large stack of 2" that I"ll put up pics of later on.

Large pile of 2 1/2" tall track, and theres at least 1 if not more switches in all this as well.
These are around 10ft long I think. we have the connectors somewhere also, used to have this setup in the backyard of another house and rode on this when I was young.

The "Farquhar" stamp on the boiler suggests it's probably from a steam traction engine rather than a locomotive.

I love the look of your equipment. I'd be interested in some of the 2ft wheelsets and the smaller rail. I have a small 2ft railway up in Arkansas, and I've been trying to expand it.
My phone number is 479-629-6074 and my email is friscomurph@gmail.com
Thanks,

Murphy J.
