Breaking action


Breaking power lever on an old iron ore train wagon near the former now closed and demolished furnace in Sweden.

SKU: AdKo1-1-2 Categories: ,


The gear here controls the braking pressure needed depending on the amount of iron ore loaded in the carriage. The Spännarhyttan furnace was the last of the small ironworks in Sweden. The industry was closed and shut down in 1982 after being one of the most modern smaller iron producers in Sweden since 1974. The world market was swamped by lower-priced iron from Asia and the USA, and Spännarhyttan became unprofitable.
The photograph was taken in 1984 outside the small town Norberg in Sweden before the furnace was demolished. The iron ore train carriages were left on a stretch of railway track nearby the furnace.
