Below the Charging Deck, Blast Furnace raw materials Iron, Coke, and Fluxing agents are stored in the Stock House where these materials are gravity fed to custom built  which in turn fed inclined skip carrying cars that ultimately charge the Blast Furnace Top.  What you are seeing here is one of the  that was removed from the Stock House during plant demolition.  The units were standard track gauge, all riveted construction, and designed as side discharge (visible) to the skip carrying cars.  In behind the  is the Iron Trestle used to access the Charging Deck, first with 0-4-0 steam locomotives (1913-1941), then the short-lived Davenports (1941-1949), and finally GE 50 Ton Center Cab units until plant operations closed (March 1977, but one of the two GE 50 Ton units were on site and active until the later half of 1981).
