Railroad has some unusual hardware.

Fashioned from hardened steel, these artifacts live on a different scale than what you find at your local retail store. Expectations in terms of their performance and lifespan are beyond the belief of most folks. 

They have specific functions.

They take a beating. 

And after all of that, they become even more curious.

"Tools" is a series that Reeves Smith has been working on as he has been alongside of the team here at Rail Yard Studios. These are the first in the series.
