One of my other hobbies is local railroad history. During the research for my book I was given access to thousands of images from glass plate negatives. Most of these photos were taken for a reason other than inventory of the railroad, usually because of a mishap. Once in a while I have to go back and refer to them. I saw these two and thought others might appreciate seeing an old tool. Railroads typically had workshops for maintenance of equipment, buildings, etc. I don’t know where these were taken nor why. Enjoy.
