H/Alphabe-Thursday

 Old boxcar, York-Durham Heritage Railway

H is for  HERITAGE and HARDWARE, railway hardware to be exact

Last Friday, as some of you already know, my husband and I visited the York-Durham Heritage Railway in Uxbridge where there are tons of rusty HARDWARE items to photograph.

 Track and hangar on which the door slides open and closes

 Handle for pulling door open and closed

 Latch and locks on old boxcar's sliding door

I find such photos of great interest...maybe because they remind me of my childhood which was filled with such artifacts.

Ginny said...

Old wooden boxcar, old rusty hardware, they are ancient and were hard working. I am glad they are in some kind of outdoor museum and will not be destroyed, that would be a shame! Thanks for the trip here, it is awesome! Old iron horses put to rest, kind of sad really.

Beautiful old hardware and great shots! I doubt you can find much metalwork of this quality anymore, certainly not easily in the U.S. (DH is having a dickens of a time finding brass fittings for the little boat he's building.)

What a treasure trove of old hardware. I wonder how much of it would work, or could be brought back to life - thinking of the sliders for the doors. Imagine the work, long ago, to keep it all working,
