Man wins bid on eBay for massive airport transporter

To most people, this looks like a giant metal tube train carriage, but to Andrew Jones this five-ton Maglev magnetic levitation transporter is design genius.
There’s just one snag, he doesn’t know what to do with it.
Mr. Jones spotted it on eBay last November and put in a £100 bid which was bettered by a £25,000 buyer – who failed to complete the deal.
‘I had no idea I’d end up with it. We have offered it to various museums since we bought it, but nobody has been able to accommodate it,
'As a result, I’ve got a five ton train in the field opposite my house and I’ve now got to find a suitable use for it.’
