Exceptional Collector's Quality Gear.

This is an amazing barn find in excellent condition from the Western Nebraska along the Platte River--a region associated with the Oregon Trail. This gear with 38" bolsters has been owned by the same family since it was purchased new and they have taken great care in preserving it and protecting it from deterioration. It is rare to find a historic running gear with this much bright, clean original paint. The stencil and lettering are crisp and legible. All wood components and wheels are very solid. The Bain Wagon Company is a name known as a famous wagon maker which supplied reliable wagons for frontier travel. If you would like information prior to purchase, call 605-996-8754.


  • Front Wheels: 44" diameter.
  • Back Wheels: 52" diameter.
  • 1 3/4" wide steel tires.


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.
