According to Reuters, Young visited Julien’s Auctions in L.A. where he sold off some rare pieces in his collection, including a “custom-painted Commodore Vanderbilt 4-6-4 locomotive,” which garnered $10,000. Reuters reports the musician also sold rare cars and music gear at the auction.

Young will donate some of the proceeds from the auction to the Bridge School in California, a school for children with disabilities, which he founded with his ex-wife, Pegi Young.
