Freight Car Chocking Skid (Exposed Rail)
Available from Aldon Company, Inc.
Item #: 4016-09
Lightweight freight car chocking skid.
At 16 lbs. and 17-1/2" in length, this easy-to-carry rail skid is handy for chocking freight cars on flat track with low places, which the rail car tends to move towards. Not recommended for grades, as skid may not hold the load.
The skid can also serve as an engineer's "bump" alert in front of a bumping post.
Also available for flush rail:
