As a bidder, you don't have to constantly watch auctions and worry about being outbid! All GovDeals Internet Auctions feature an auto-bid. In the bid box on the auction view page, enter the HIGHEST dollar amount that you are willing to pay, and the GovDeals bidding system will bid on your behalf by placing a bid at the current LOWEST minimum bid. If another bidder outbids your LOWEST minimum bid, the system will automatically place another bid, once again making you the current high bidder, until your "top dollar" number is reached. The auto-bidding system will continue to place the LOWEST minimum bids on your behalf until you are the winner of the auction or another bidder bids higher than your auto-bid. Auto-bids are completely private and are never displayed to other bidders. In the event of a reserve price auction, your auto-bid will immediately bid up to the amount of the reserve OR to the max amount of your auto-bid if the reserve price is in excess of your auto-bid.


Bid Extension

If a bid is placed during the final 3 minutes of an auction, the auction's current end time will automatically extend for additional 3 minutes. This will continue until no bids are placed during the last three minutes.

Since most bidding occurs during the final minutes of an auction, this allows all bidders a sufficient amount of time to continue bidding.


Probation Level 1 Bidding

This Seller has instituted a Bidder Probation Restriction on this auction. To have this restriction removed, a $1,000 refundable deposit in the form of a Certified Cashier's Check or U.S. Postal Money Order must be mailed to GovDeals, Inc., 100 Capitol Commerce Boulevard, Suite 110, Montgomery, AL 36117.

For further information and deposit details please contact Customer Service.


Open auction where bidding starts at a fixed amount and increases by a minimum bid increment (or higher) by different bidders until the auction end time is reached. Once the auction has closed and a high bidder has been identified, the seller reserves the right to approve or reject the final offer.

Yellow Miniature 24 gauge train manufactured by Severn Lam in 2012 and used at the Zoo from 2013 - 2018. The train has an engine, tender, and three coaches. The train is themed on a North American steam outline design to run on 610 mm (2 ft.) gauge track. At the time of last operation, the train was running optimally and has had basic maintenance subsequent to the last operation and has no known issues with its operation. The power unit is a Kubota KV3600T diesel engine driving a hydraulic pump. Power is transmitted to eight wheels on four axles by two hydraulic motors through duplex and simplex chains and sprockets. Full independent chair tensioning and adjustment is provided.

The train is fitted with a suitable air compressor for the supply of air for continuous fail safe braking and a spring on air off parking brake fitted to the tender bogies. Electric starting is provided with heavy-duty battery and charging via a heavy-duty alternator.

One coach on the train is wheelchair accessible. The rear seat in the train coach is equipped with a microphone connected to the trains sound system and a emergency stop button. The train has been operated with an engineer (driver in front) and conductor (rear seat) during operations.

Additional specifications can be found in the attached document.
