Where are they now?
This is the stock car that was used on the Great Circus Parade train for many years. It has a set of doors at the end that enabled the loading of a tractor or such. It sits outside of the train sheds at the Circus World Museum in Baraboo, WI.
I performed from 1973 to 1995 with a couple years off in between. I did an aerial cradle act for three years, low wire as a clown, trained llamas, ponies, then lions and tigers for 15 years. I am now a firefighter, a member of the Circus Historical Society and an author of several circus and carnival related subjects.
