With the ending of the Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey Circus, does anyone know what has or is happening to their railcars?

With the ending of the Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey Circus, does anyone know what has or is happening to their railcars?

 

I understand they have been auctioned. Probably dispersed among different buyers in different locations.

 

No idea how many have gone for scrap versus how many are finding a new purpose.

PM me and I can send you a spreadsheet with the cars listed. The largest buyers are NCDOT with 9 cars, PAXX/Crossroads Rail with 12, EL Dining Car Society has 2, Cincinnati Dinner Train 2.

Some former circus performers have also purchased individual cars and are placing them on their personal property.

 

I.believe that Circus World Museum in Baraboo got one or two.

 

And I think one was donated to a ministry group which aids retired circus people.
