And notice the square shaft on the brake wheel. Where is Bill Welch with his reel of square wire now that I see proof that I need some?

Note that the gear within the makeshift housing at the bottom of the shaft appears to have broken and was forced off center (to the left).

 

The “B” end of the car seems OK.  There may have been damage to the car, lading or an injury to a carman?
