They are Ridgeway Spark Arrestors more commonly known as "bear traps".  Common on the C&S narrow engines in spring, summer and fall when there was a fire hazard. They would remove them in the winter to clear snowsheds and because most everything was under snow.

Hello all:
In the BRHS web site's Photo of the Day, would some nice person please add an explanation in the "description field" for this feature on these locomotives. I am sure not everyone knows what their purpose is and are curious.
More then one person can add an explanation, so if you know a little more about it, please go ahead and contribute your added two cents.  Any stories about these things that add color and go beyond facts would be really great.

The "Photo of the Day" is one of the most visited features on the BRHS web site and a great way to share your knowledge with others.
Thank you.
