BCA has sold every type of commercial vehicle from electric Megavans to 60 tonne cranes over the years, but these life-sized ‘train sets’ feature among the more unusual vehicles the company has handled. Previously operated by a local authority, two roadtrains and six carriages were offered for sale at BCA Glasgow on October 14.

The UK-made ‘New Holland Leisure Roadtrain’ and Italian-built Dotto ‘trackless train’ were sold during BCA’s regular commercial sale at the Glasgow Auction Centre. Each came with three carriages holding around 15 people, with the diesel-powered New Holland train selling for £4900 and the electric Dotto example realising £2500.

“Fully working and in great condition, these roadtrains were ideal for attractions such as theme parks, country estates or stately homes, or maybe even garden centres and other large retail operators wanting to appeal to families” said Duncan Ward, BCA’s General Manager Commercial Vehicles. “The sale underlines that auctions can offer a remarketing solution, whatever the vehicle might be.”
