The bells and whistles of the railroad are no longer heard throughout the OK Café. But their legacy lives on, now in the homes of people all over the area. The railroad cars and tracks were just some of the hundreds of antiques sold at the OK Café's auction Wednesday. Each of the cars and both of the tracks were sold separately. The railroad track and its cars were a highlight of the café. OK Café Owner Pat Randolph says while some of the cars were sold in the auction outside of the café others were pulled aside, for visitors that have coveted the cars for years. "That brought a lot of business into my business. The train was something that I put in for families and it worked perfectly," said Randolph. The box cars averaged $50 per car as utility cars with lights brought in more than $200.
