Locomotive Chocking Skid (Exposed Rail)
Available from Aldon Company, Inc.
Item #: 4016-13
At 16 lbs and 17½ " long, this model skid is handy for chocking locomotive on flat track. The low-profile (4" tall) handle clears any wheel frame or brake shoe obstruction.
Locomotive air and hand brake must be applied as soon as wheel has mounted skid. The skid alone will not hold a locomotive steady.
Not recommended for grades, as skid may not hold the load.
Skids are also available in flush rail models: 4016-09-L and 4016-09-R
