Anti-climbers..

Some anti-climbers are manufactured with aluminium mesh within them...this one has lateral large grooves to 'lock' both car bodies on possible impact during a collision...the primary purpose is the same.

Quotes:
In the event when the coupler collapses as during a head-on collision, the anti-climbers fitted between cars enmesh (the meshing of opposing horizontal ridges on the anti-climbers) to keep the car ends downward instead of upward. This will prevent the cars from literally climbing over each other leading to a possible derailment. While holding the cars downwards, the honeycomb aluminum mesh inside the anti-climbers will also absorb the horizontal force of collision before the car-ends come in contact (in fact, the couplers are our first-line of defence and the anti-climbers are the second-line of defence before the carbody frames actually come into contact.
