Default Railroad anvil and cone anvil

My buddy has what he calls a railroad anvil,he says you scored the track and then dropped in on this anvil to break it.i think it had a hardy that you put the track on and then hit it with a sledge to score the track.
He wants to sell it.

He also has a "cone" anvil,it must stand 40'' tall and looks like an upside down ice cream cone,it was used to make the steel tapered hoops used on wagon wheel hubs.
Its also for sale.

On other thing he has is an anvil i'm sure i saw on this site.
It lays flat,its about 15x15 and has square holes and round holes and half rounds etc around the outside.
its for sale also,plus he may have a standard anvil for sale and on the horn it has an odd half round part that hangs off the side of the horn.
Located in Brazil In.

What your describing is called a swage block.
