This was not an ordinary oil drum; because of its construction, I am concluding that it was discarded by a RR work crew during the removal of the tracks.

At this point (looking west), there was a siding that led to an as-yet-unknown business. Currently, there is a metal recycling yard at the end of the siding roadbed.
