SALE BY AUCTION OF THE BISHOP'S CASTLE RAILWAY COMPANY'S PLANT. Last week, this great sale of rolling stock took place at the George Hotel, Shrewsbury. The stock was the property of the Bishop's Castle Railway Company, whose line, running from Craven Arms to iji?.hop's Cascle, with a projected continuation to Montgomery, was lately seized by the Sheriff, and the company being unable to satisfy the claims of the suing creditors, their available property was ordered to be sold by auction. The catalogue enumerated sixty-one lots, comprising twenty-five strongly-built goods waggons, with break, built by the Birmingham WnggoiiCoinpany; fourteen cattle trucks, with spring buffers and break, buijt by the Midland Waggon Com- pany five coal waggons, five enclosed goods vans. with spring buffers and break composite carriages, four third-class carriages, and two passenger vans, all built by the Midland Waggon Company a tank en- gine, and a powerful six-wheel locomotive engine. There was a large attendance in the auction room; but, as might be expected, only a few were present with the intention of becoming purchasers. The first lot put up was one of the goods waggons, which start- ing with a bid of £ 20, was ultimately knocked down at £ 31. The buyer in this case elected,to take the whole of the waggons at this price, and his example was followed by the purchasers of several other dis- tinct classes of stock. The cattle trucks, which were stated to have cost XSO each, brought X37 the coal waggons, original cost £70, brought X45 each; the goods vans, original cost £90, brought £ 50 the com- posite carriages, original cost JE250, sold at X123 each the third-class carriages, first cost £170, went for £ 57 a piece the passenger break vans sold for X77 each the tank engine, built at a cost of £900, realised .£410; and the "powerful six-wheel locomo- tive engine, with tender, in good working order," was knocked down for ,£470. All the stock, with the exception of the locomotive, were guaranteed to be equal to new; and it was stated that some of the carriages and waggons had never been used. The total sum realised was £ 3,522. A gentleman from Birmingham, stated to be the representative of the Midland Waggon Company, was the principal pur- chaser.— Os Ad.
