FS: Tangley Calliope & Trailer in So. Calif.
By Dave Rice

For sale: a 43-key Tangley calliope in parade trailer.  It used be in
the Barnum and Bailey Circus in Southern California, was at Disneyland
for seven years and it appeared in three movies.

The calliope is complete with all 43 brass whistles and front and rear
access panels, except the keyboard cover is missing.  Two Roots blowers
are included, one with a gasoline engine and the other with a 120 VAC
electric motor.  The trailer needs painting.  It still has the "elephant
stop stand" on the tongue of the trailer.

The calliope was played by Tracy Heaston in Branson, Missouri.  I got
it a few months ago and towed it from Missouri to California behind my
motor home.  Since then my doctor told me I have stage four cancer.
I don't want my wife to have to deal with the calliope when I am gone.

Thank you for your thoughts on this.
