Rebuilding the Ringling Bell Wagon

Notice the previous framework for the Bell wagon sitting in the back.

Not much from the orginal frame work is reused in these wagons. About the only wagons that are close to being 100% orginal were the Elephant Tab in Sarasota were it still has/had the copper roof still on it I think and maybe the John Robinson Calliope in Deardorn at the Ford Museum. Not sure about the John Robinson wagon still having the orginal roof and body. Maybe the Gentry Ticket wagon in the Hertzberg collection is also close.
