""""""""""""""
North Freedom, WI -Mid-Continent Ry Historical Society - Auction

All the four cranes (including the wrecker) to scrappers at about $75.00/ton.

Mopac 120 ton steam wrecker, very good boiler in almost working condition. Had been run about 10 years ago. Was sold to scrapper. $4500.

Soo LineOrton & Steinbrenner 15 ton steam crane, sold for scrap.

The potential scrapping of the cranes makes me ill. But if anybody is interested I am sure the scrappers would be willing to sell them at a profit? I heard and it may not be reliable that the MOPAC wrecker sold for $4500 ? I think the air pump and steam water pump would of been worth near that much? Oh well all over but the crying now.""""""""""""""""""""""

75 per ton seems very cheap.
Our 5 ton Smith & Rodley scrapped last year made £100/ tonne and that was a reduced rate due to being scrapped In Situ at Newbridge with the scrappers having to travel from York.
