(Disneyland, c.1950s-60s) An original locomotive brake shoe from the Disneyland Railroad. Constructed of cast iron, raised lettering reading "Lovstead 22227 Royal Steel" is molded into the top of the shoe. This piece was previously installed on one of the railroad's iconic steam engines, and when activated, would press against the tire to slow down the train. Measuring 3.25"x9" and 2.75" deep, the brake shoe is in good condition with patina and oxidation overall as well as some surface pitting and corrosion at the ends from outdoor use.
