I recently created some details for the layout scenes that I stumbled across while browsing the net.
A yard speaker, that was probably used for communication between train crew and yard master before CB radio was established in locomotives. As my era is settled in early 80ies I found it plausible to add them to the main yard.
Next part was a simple wheel stop, no exact prototype given here. They fit on the rail head of the code 55 track.
