Hedley Anticlimber

Brass Casting: Anticlimber comes with a small tow pin. Used on most streetcars for emergency towing. This item was commonly used for accident protection, and the device was useful in the event of a collision. The webbing would interlock and not allow the car bodies to ride over one another (or “telescope”) and prevent further injuries or death. The anticlimber also has a series of holes through the webbing, so that a disabled car could be pushed or towed out of the way or around the yards and workshops. This would be used in conjunction with a separate tow bar, which was usually hung up under the car, but accessible for the car crews. This tow bar is not yet available from LRP, but can be made from a piece of small round stock or flat stock approximately 3.5" in length (7 scale feet), flattened at the ends and a small hole drilled through it. The bar was long enough so that when car were towed though sharp curves, the tow bar would not force the other car off the tracks!
