Best Answer

"Iron horse" is a nickname for a locomotive, the strong and powerful vehicle that pulls all the other cars of a train down the tracks. Lou Gehrig was very strong and powerful, hitting all those home runs (493 in his MLB career) and playing every game (he played 2130 consecutive MLB games).
