Bidders are set to get all steamed up when a holiday park with a difference - chalets in converted rail carriages - goes under the hammer.
The Brunel Camping Carriages site at Dawlish Warren in Devon is being sold with a freehold guide price of £125,000 to £175,000.
The site, which closed at the end of this summer after 50 years, is among the West Country lots listed for sale by auctioneers Clive Emson in November.
Auctioneer Scott Gray said: "This is a truly spectacular opportunity to acquire an iconic former holiday letting enterprise.
"We're expecting a great deal of interest from bidders who may wish to capitalise on the enduring appeal of railways and reopen it as a holiday venture.
"Alternatively, with 0.83 acres (0.34 hectares) of land, others may see the potential for alternative schemes or developments subject to the necessary consents."
The holiday park has eight locomotive carriages. All are named individually after UK cities. Each includes a kitchen, living area, bedroom and bathroom to sleep six to eight people.
