    This is a gigantic and extremely heavy railroad wrench, presumably for use on locomotives. CBQ = Chicago Burlington and Quincy. I got it at Winterrail 2006 in Stockton, CA.

      My Dad used to work for that RR in South Dakota before he joined the Army in WWII. He used to fire engines up in the morning. He was under age at the time but they were hard-up for help because the eligible men were all joining the military.
