Steel brick?
Posted by DAN CARRION on Thursday, May 18, 2023 1:16 AM

Hello Everyone Can anyone tell me what this is? It is steel or cast iron. very heavy. I have found two of them at different times, both in former Southern Pacific yards nearly 200 miles apart, buried in the dirt. Tripped over both of them.

Possibly from EMD, GE, or whomever, to add ballest for greater traqctive effort from a standerd diewsel electric?  Or to add weight gto an empty Schnabel car to prevent derailment?
