I believe it's a part of the smokestack I was wondering if you could identify this was found on the original BEV Railroad remains near tow Hill ghost town in state college what you guys think

I think you are correct in that it is part of the smoke stack. Perhaps it is debris from a boiler explosion.

‘Tis said his form is tiny, yet
All human ills he can subdue,
Or with a bauble or medal
Can win mans heart for you;
And many a blessing know to stew
To make a megloamaniac bright;
Give honour to the dainty Corse,
The Pixie is a little shite.

Can't get a proper look at it, and it would help to see it in the context where you found it.

It could be part of a smokestack, or it could be any number of other things as well.

If you want an expert opinion, go to Big Blue, the model railroading and railroad history site, and post your image there. There are members there who build locomotives.
