Souvenir Friday- Disneyland Railroad Bolster Plate

This is an original bolster plate from the Disneyland Railroad. A bolster plate is the cover for bracing under the train cars. The bracing cushions the car and makes the ride smoother. You can see the plates in use at Disneyland looking at the bottom of the train passenger cars by the wheels. There are reproductions of the plates out there, but they do not have the paint and are lighter metal.
