At 16 lbs and 17½", this model skid is handy for chocking locomotives on flat track. The low-profile (4" tall) handle clears any wheel frame or brake shoe obstruction.
Locomotive air and hand brakes 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.
Sold as "left rail" or "right rail"
