Re: One more day on the Madera Sugar Pine grades....

Just a short way up from the other metal debris I found this over the side:

Nearby was this 6 foot length of about 6" diameter pipe:

Not sure if these two items were related to the same incident...

Madera Sugar Pine used both the link & pin coupler and a piece of wire rope wrapped around the end beam to secure the log car for the ride up & down the incline. The broken link probably did not cause a runaway. This 1923 photo forester Donald Bruce took at the foot of the incline shows this arrangement in detail:

Partly buried in the grade nearby were the remains of a shovel:

Here's a general overview of where all these artifacts were found:
