Rail stabilizer?


Was this item used to stabilize rail on a curve or stabilize rail at a switch? Dimensions are about 8 X 4 X 2 1/2 inches and is marked "7652 60 LB". Intended use must have been for 60 pound rail. It was found along the CPRR.

That rail stabilizer was used where ever the engineer in charge thought it was needed, I've seen them only on a curve. The UPRR used a similiar item.
