I think it's a foot release locking device for a low stand hand throw switch. Or, possibly part of a manually operated interlocking device where two railroads cross. To be honest, I really don't know either, but that's my best guess,.....which I really wouldn't bet much on!

Looks like a hitch for a tug (we called them 'mules') to pull baggage carts around the train station.

I don't know what it is but it does not look like a jack. Maybe some kind of a catch/latch/release thingy??

Harold, you're right on the money with the foot latch for a low switch stand. Used them thousands of times throughout my career.....

Who cares what it is? "it will last a lifetime or two" and he's open to trading for an egg incubator or whatever you think he needs.

I liked the way he worded the ad so much that I almost called just to BS with him.
