Neat images, Eric. That would be a "K" brake system, I think. Much older
design to the more contemporary systems used.
Attached is a detail of an image showing an idea of what the car might have
looked like. These were wood-bodied CP ore cars used in the Boundary area
around the same time. If it was carrying coke it could have been a gondola
or box car, too.

Sometime after 1901 a wood-frame car fell 50' down to the lakeshore. Most
of the wood has floated away, some coke is nearby.
Some questions: what do you call the riveted steel beam? I found diagrams
for brakes, but nothing for frames this old. Hard to find info because
"wood railcar" search just returns wood bodies on steel frames.
I Hope to go back this afternoon with a shovel. Would be great if the rest
of it were under the gravel.
