Last Train Home
Sorry if this isn't the right place to post this question but I thought it to be something that doesn't fit elsewhere. While walking along the tracks in south Bellingham (Wa.) last week I saw 4 of these odd looking things that I couldn't figure out what their purpose was. There were set up parallel to one another between the siding and the mainline of the BNSF. At first they looked like rather crude rain collectors but two were on posts and rather cockeyed so I'm not sure if that is what they are. I'm not losing sleep over what they are for but does anyone have an explanation for what they might be?
