It does look like that, doesn't it? That was some kind of switch or sensor thing kind of attached to the tracks but not in the path of the train. I'll have to look at the other pics I took that day and see if I can figure it out better. What I really like about this picture is the angle and distance from which thepicture was taken relative to the train - emphasizes the bulk, mass, and power of that locomotive, I think.

Yes, this angle emphasizes what you want to emphasize; unfortunately it also gives more weight to track-level artifacts. I'm guessing that a photo taken from a higher elevation would resolve the issue of what this thing is.
