I believe what you have is the bottom end of an oil can! If I am correct
there would have been a long spout screwed on the top so an engineer could
oil his running gear as needed. Just my best guess!

Can anyone provide some insight as to what this item was used for? It is
stamped "N&W RY CO" on the side and has the name of the manufacturer on the
bottom. Unfortunately all we can make out on the underside is "MFG CO".
The actual name is beyond recognition. The can is 11" H x 6-3/4" W. Any
insight is greatly appreciated.
