I don't know for sure if the rail car that's sitting on this suspension joint is technically "broken", but based on its condition I'd guess it's not going to be back in service ever again. The amount of rust on it suggests that it's been sitting in this no-longer-used siding for long enough that it's going to take much more than a bit of "lube" to ever make it serviceable again.
Stumble This!

That's a really cool shot! Yes doesn't look like any lube will work on that.

I'm so glad you chose black and white, it gives it an intriguing texture - almost looks soft, like moss. Well, does it have moss on it or is that all rust? It's a good shot.
