A very large & very retro New Zealand Railways twitch or load binder or something similar. Someone may know the exact application. Looks very old. Perhaps was made at the Railway Works as to be, a number of parts look like they have been made from thick steel plate. (roughly 12mm odd or 1/2 inch plate perhaps.) Has NZR stamped into it as per photo, but can see no other identifying marks. (watcher below says it is not NZR. But no doubt someone will remember using such an item. Its quite solid, weighs a bit over 9 kg. It measures approx. 1080mm long (NOT COUNTING THE CHAIN) there is approx. 650mm of thick chain. Needs a good wire brushing to remove surface rust (its not all rusted up, still good I think) and a paint perhaps to make it look good. Apart from that, can not think of much else to say. In the intersts of fairness to everyone Have added watchers comments that say they it is NOT NZ Rail item "I DONT THINK THIS IS NEW ZEALAND RAILWAYS BECAUSE THESE WERE NEVER USED ON THE WAGON BECAUSE ALL THE FLAT TOP WAGONS HAD THERE OWN ONES THAT COULD NOT BE REMOVED FROM THE WAGON AND THEY WERE SCREW DOWN TYPE SO WERE NEVER THAT TYPE AT AND THE LOG WAGONS DO NOT USE THEM . TO ME IT LOOKS LIKE SOMEONE HAS GO ONE AND PUT NZR ON IT IF IT WAS RAILWAYS THE NZR WOULD BE WELDED INTO THE STEEL OF IT portaframesnz " I personally think he is wrong in saying that it is not NZ Rail, but I do not know about NZ rail stuff, so only fair that I add his comments, right or wrong.
