We are trying to identify and date a knuckle that purportedly came from the Williamstown Railroad. This piece came from the Ernest Sickler farm, through which the Williamstown Railroad ran from when regular service began on  Oct. 21, 1872 until sometime before 1934 when the section from Williamstown Junction to Williamstown was taken up as part of the PSRL merger.  This proximity to the railroad is the only thing that ties the part to this line.  We would like to know any details that can be found about the coupler and the period of time that it was in use.  There appears to be a number cast into the rearmost part, but it is unreadable.  We are hoping that the pointed shape of the rear section might be the key to identification.
