We found this trolly still hanging on the tracks. Inside a barn that was built in the 1880s. We couldnt really tell what it was because of all the Dirt Dobber nest and owl crap on it.
When we took it down and hit it with a bit of water from the hose I was kinda surprised to see the shape it was in. There are 13 total wheels on this. Every one of them turned free with very little effort. I decided to clean it up a bit more and the results are fantastic in my opinion.During the cleaning process every single bolt, nut, alignment pin, & cotter pin was saved and still on the trolly. No parts have been replaced or updated. No paint has been added or touched up in any manner.
What you see is what was on it when I found it. The silver-ish color you see is the original zink coating they were dipped into after being built. In some places you can even see a bit of the red paint on the raised numbers and letters and the heads on the nuts and bolts. This is truly one of the most complete units you will ever see with every single part working with one exception.
The spring inside is missing. If I keep this trolly I will add one.
The asking price is high because this is what I value at. Thanx for stopping by and taking a look.More listings to come soon from this old barn.
