This is an amazing, exceptional barn find in great condition from Western Nebraska near the Platte River--a region with such a rich history with the Oregon Trail. 

This beautiful running gear with 38"bolsters has been lovingly owned by the same family since it was new and kept it in great condition. It is rare to find a historic running gear with this much bright, clean original paint.

The stencils and lettering are bold and easily readable. The wood components, uphostery, and wheels are all very sturdy.

The Bain Wagon Company is an iconic brand; these wagons were a popular choice in the days of frontier travel.

Question: How do you ship this vehicle to me?

Answer: We coordinate shipments of large freight items - such as our wagons, carriages, and coaches - within a network of private carriers so that your freight is safely transported to your destination without transfer. These are usually coordinated as partial loads in order to save costs, so it can take anywhere between 2 days to 2 weeks to find a ride. They will be transported in enclosed vans that vary from "U-Haul" size box vans to full 53' semi trailers. Contact us for more information and freight quotes. You may also arrange your own shipping through

Question: How do I offload this vehicle at delivery?

Answer: If you have a delivery location with a loading dock available this is your best option. However, we can also deliver to any location that a semi-trailer can access. We then recommend coordination with a towing service to use a tilt-bed wrecker truck. The vehicle can be rolled off the trailer on to the bed of the wrecker truck and it will be tilted/lowered down to the ground from there.
