POTD: Lever and Chain

Lever and Chain
Ely, Nevada
2017

I stopped here in Ely last night on my way to Death Valley and eventually Ridgecrest, CA for my art exhibit opening. I was surprised that it’s as cold here as it has been recently up in Montana. I arrived just as the sun was going down so had a few minutes to photograph at the Northern Nevada Railroad yards before it got dark. This was part of the release mechanism for the storage bins on an old railroad car of some sort.
