Railroad Tools
« on: July 08, 2020, 01:42:46 PM »
This picture is not dated, it is of The Brooklyn Rapid Recking tool car. Brooklyn Rapid Transit 1896-1923. It’s a glass negative which explains the crystal clear shot. It’s so clear you could smell the car, look at this tools...you know who ever used those tools, treated them as if he owned them personally. You could eat off that floor.

Looks like a post vise on a pedestal.

Yeah, the rope!  Gotta be about 3 maybe 4 inches diameter.  I wonder how many of those tools still exist today.

Hmm, I still don't see a coping saw. But I do see what looks like a metal frame hacksaw, with a wood handle.

This side of the two hacksaws is a larger saw with a rectangular blade.  Also notice the Edison bulbs and the lanterns.  I assume the bulbs were D.C.?
You might say I have a tool collecting problem....
