Railroad Switch, Marked Bethlehem [Steel?] .... Info about this would be great!!!! ... I know switch locks fit on it but what was it for, are there other parts???
The railroad piece with Bethlehem steel marked on it is a switch/point bar latch, there are two of these mounted about 1 foot apart facing the track. To change the direction of the tracks one would unlock the latch, throw the lever 180 degrees into the opposite latch and lock it.
