This is a vintage weathervane / lightning rod, made of cast iron, with a train (locomotive) attached to the end of the rod. Total length is 24 1/2 inches long. The locomotive clearly was added to the rod, but it is securely fastened, and appears to be cast aluminum. The wheels do turn, and it adds a "certain something" to the item....would be excellent for a train afficianado!The hole for the rod is double and has a 3/4 inch opening. It was difficult to get a good picture due to the length of this item, as I said the total length was 24 1/2 inches, the train itself is approximately 8 inches. I prefer PayPal, but will accept money orders. Please wait for an invoice before making payment. S/H will be $10.50 Parcel Post. Insurance is recommended but not required. I'm listing a second rod, and will be happy to combine shipping. I'm happy to answer any questions, thanks for looking!
