Locomotive for sale

Someone, possibly the Mount Washington Cog Railway people, is selling a "Working Cog Railway Steam Locomotive" on eBay. The opening bid starts at $100,000.00:

This is locomotive #3 of the Mt Washington Cog Railway Steam Locomotives. It is in good working order, but is being retired in favor of diesel Locomotives. This engine is a cogwheel locomotive and uses the Marsh Rack system It runs on 56" gauge.

The winning bidder will have to go to New Hampshire to pick it up.

A cog railway is not the kind of railroad we're used to around here, so I doubt anyone in Springfield will be getting this. But, wouldn't it be cute on Third Street?
