Exquisite steam calliope, recent professional restoration started, mounted on a 23' long carnival float from 1940. Bought in Colorado in the early 1960s, in our family ever since, it has always been stored in a heated garage.

Boiler manufactured by James Leffel & Co. c. 1905, is 12 HP. Whistles, 32 for keyboard, are mostly pre-1916 Lunkenheimer, Crane & a few Buckeyes. The whistles were reclaimed from a boat on the Mississippi river.

Circus trailer is 8' wide x 10' high without the chimney. Chimney adds approx. 44". Whistles range from 1 1/2" dia x 2 14" tall to 6" dia x 11" tall. Boiler whistle is 5" dia x 18" tall. Wheels are 4 7.50 x 16 6 lug rims with 4 wheel hydraulic drums with emergency actuator. "Divco '' axles semi-elliptic sprung on the I-beam frame/diamond plate floor. Military pintle hitch that tows well behind 1/2 ton pickup. All new running gear, tires and brakes.

Replacing the boiler with an air compressor would simplify modern use. To preserve the authentic look, an air compressor could even be dropped inside the boiler. Asking $30,000 or best offer.


Local pickup only: Pickup location will be updated after order is received.
