I don't know anything more about them (i.e., I don't know if the two small locomotives are for sale), a link to them was posted on the AOTT page on facebook with this caption "Please share! Dinning car, caboose, box car set up for kitchen for sale! Must be moved off property. Please feel free to share! 502-376-4211 brenda":

Edit: more info has been added to the post (I have cropped several comments together):

"Located in Charlestown, Indiana. (15 miles north of Louisville, KY). Includes CSXT Instruction Car #995002, a caboose, and boxcar. ... Says the locos are 12k eack, 13k for caboose and 11k for the car which is as SAL, looks like it was a coach, nice door cut into the side above the roof line. ... Looks like the only SAL obs with a blunt end was 6400, built in 1939, rebuilt in 1943 at which time the blunt end was added....This car is very historic, yes it is has been poorly modified, yes it was rebuilt in 43, yes it's a prewar Budd, but it is the first for the East Coast. It was part the first order for SAL and changed railroading on the East Coast. The first car to wear the Siver Meteor drumhead. I'm not going to buy it, but would make a great story teller of when railroading changed."

I just looked at these on Facebook. She has prices in the comments.
The diesels are $12k each.
The caboose is $13k.
The stainless car is $11k.

Just figured I would pass that on.

Only the passenger car is left, and it looks like vandals have had at it. I hope the other equipment found homes. Photo today, Dave Withers.

Update:
In a real surprise, it turns out that a group has been working on moving and saving this car since last Fall (too bad they couldn't have moved it before the bast*rds got so much of the glazing):

Seaboard 6400 is a piece of history worth preserving built for the Silver Meteor it traveled the rails between New York and Miami from 1939 to 1971. Millions of passengers traveled aboard the car. Its ownership continued through the mergers and the car retired by CSX in the 1990's . It was sold to Louisville Scrap and rescued by Clark Nichols who lovingly cared for the coach and operated a eatery in Charlestown, IN Nichols gave the car to the township of Charlestown but plans fell through on a planned use. Dr. Treva Hodges, Mayor of Charlestown was kind enough to donate the car to the Louisville Railway Company for preservation." ("Louisville Railway Company is a not for profit Kentucky Corp. working to restore streetcar service in Louisville Kentucky." https://www.facebook.com/LouisvilleRailwayCo/)

Today this was shared to AOTT facebook: https://www.facebook.com/john.owen.5815 ... 3850875595

"Dear Friends;
Work is progressing on Seaboard Airline Coach 6400 located in Charlestown IN , The car is secure and work has stopped for a few days due to the recent snow and ice conditions. and low temps Still to do is removal of some plumbing connections pipes that had connected to the city sewers. Some removal of two sections left over from canopy removal that attached to the coach and a gutter attached to the side of the coach. That will be completed as soon as the ice melts where it is safe to do so. More pics will follow showing progress made. The Louisville Railway Company board takes pride in saving this car and its history with 2021 Feb will mark the cars first run very soon on the first Silver Meteor. At the end of 2021 will mark our entry into World War Two. Our intention is to honor the vets and others killed at Kitrell North Carolina June 15 1942 with a plaque being installed of the souls lost that fatefull day. The 6400 survival is a tribute to those who who lost their life that day."

They have a gofundme set up that outlines their plans: https://www.gofundme.com/f/help-save-se ... S63oM3JVoY
