Good morning. I found your forum during a search to locate information related to an Estate Auction that my firm is conducting. One of the locomotives on your site that was previously posted is being sold by me in an auction. We are selling the assets from the Estate of the late Royce G Kershaw in Montgomery, Alabama. This auction features #7 Locomotive from the W.T Smith Lumber Company. Mr Kershaw believed that Hank Williams Sr's father may have been the conductor on this train. This auction is a no reserve auction that also features other train related assets and a vintage automobile collection. I will be happy to share my auction company website here.
