TAMPA (FOX 13) -

You can now own a piece of Disney World history -- a really big piece. An original $6-million monorail cab is up for sale on eBay, and it will only set you back $189,000.

Even on a trailer, the sleek red and white vehicle is instantly recognizable as the iconic front car seen and ridden by millions of visitors to the 'happiest place on Earth.'

"This is the actual front cab of the red monorail which serviced Walt Disney World from the grand opening of the resort in 1971 until the arrival of the Mark VI monorails starting in 1989," the eBay listing boasts. "Most of the cars and trains from the Mark IV monorails were destroyed, so finding a full car for sale in such condition is impossible."

The cab is listed on eBay by seller Theme Park Connection, which also offers a variety of other Disney paraphernalia -- from theme park uniforms to collectable trinkets -- among their items. As of Tuesday afternoon, there were apparently nine bids for the item, with a day left in the auction.

The listing says all of the cab's original components are still attached, including doors, control consoles, and seating.

"Park-used ride vehicle, some extensive wear from use," the listing continues.

If you don't have a spare monorail track laying around, don't worry. The 47-foot-long car is on a custom road-friendly trailer. But you'll have to head to Georgia and pick it up if you're interested; that $189,000 purchase price doesn't include delivery.

    Step through the doors of Hope's Land of Candy in Island Park, Long Island and you''ll be taking a trip back in time. There's no WIFI but they do have a Victrola piano. And then there's the candy.. lots and lots of it.

    It appears the subway bedbug problem we've been reporting is getting worse. Commuters already have to contend with sweltering platforms, scurrying rats and packed train cars, and now there's another transit woe: fear of bedbugs.
