Saw this is on eBay and thought everyone would get a kick out of it. This barn has two vintage standard gauge boxcars incorporated into its construction. The story on the listing states that: "...around the 1920's the Indiana railroad came around and would sell them (farmers) 2 cars and set them in place for $50. The farmers would then use these as foundations for cheap buildings."
I've often wondered if there aren't still some narrow gauge boxcars kicking around like this...somewhere. (Interesting number too!)
