A selection of the items listed for auction in June.
NOBLESVILLE, Ind. – The city of Noblesville will auction 36 pieces of rolling stock from the Indiana Transportation Museum collection in June. The city has hired Ozark Mountain Railcar to dispose of these items, which were not picked up by other organizations during last year's emergency disposal and rescue missions.

The museum plans to move to a new location in Logansport, which is about 50 miles northwest of Noblesville.

Among the items are nine passenger cars, 19 freight cars, six locomotives, and two maintenance-of-way machines. The auction is scheduled for June 5-7, 2019.

The passenger stock includes an office car, two ex-Santa Fe stainless steel Budd-built coaches, baggage cars, a Railway Post Office, a steam generator, and a diner. The freight equipment includes seven wooden boxcars and five steel refrigerator cars, as well as a tank car and a wooden caboose.

Four EMD F units including an F7B, a GP9, a Baldwin switcher, and a 44-ton GE will be sold, as well as a tie crane and a tamper.

Indiana Transportation Museum was evicted as part of a long and complicated battle between the museum and the City of Noblesville. The museum operated on 35 miles of isolated track, which it did not own.
