UPRR is most likely Union Pacific Rail Road. It was probably filled (note the large hole) a screw plug inserted and then put on some stand laying on its side and drained through the smaller spigot. I couldn't tell you what it held, it could be any type of liquid from water to oil, railroads used a multitude of items back in the day as they were one of the largest industries in the country.

Unloaded my signs from the Walker sale today. It was pretty tough going there for a guy that has to work for his money.
The plumbing sign has a beautiful green with white letters color under that ***** yellow and black. The Howard Johnson's lamplighter is a pretty rare sign, I've been looking for one for ten years, finally got it.

I sold one when about 15 years ago and I have regretted it ever since. I finally found another one in original condition.

The Union Pacific Barrel was most likely used for bearing oil back in the days before we had sealed bearings AKA "journals" on the rail cars a worker called a Carman (we still have them) would walk the train lifting doors on the truck frame where the axle fit's under the truck and check the oil level and fill as needed.
I still have one of those barrel's down at my yard it has some oil left in it I would guess they were also used for any other lubricant needed such as motor oil, governor oil etc..

Here are some of the cans we used for these types of oil,

This was used to fill the journals



This was used for smaller areas inside the locomotive,





Always looking for Frontier and Beeline items.
