That looks amazing.
I’ve a ~1m length i’ll happily split if you can get your mate to do mine next!
I'm surprised you let a minor detail like that stop you.
do they get heavier when theres a train coming???
any spare , Ive always thought a bit would be handy to have , or even a couple of bits if you had them laying about.
there working on the crossing tomorrow nite and closing the road il go ask them if I can cut a length off I wish
That looks good John
I was offered 4 lengths of railway track free of charge, all I had to do was get them collected. Unfortunately I had to turn it down as I couldn't fit them on a 40' trailer and cutting them on site was not allowed, I even offered to cut them by hand with a hacksaw but the answer was no. They were over 60' long
PM me and I'll get you a bit sorted.
I shall do that ,,, ta
I have seen an article on the web that said They used to break a chunk of rail off by nicking the top with a hand held chisel wqlloped by a sledge hammer then drop the rail from 3-4 feet across another piece of rail and it was supposed to snap off at the score line.
Rail track makes superb fencing strainers and gate posts when you live next to an old railway line. But digging them out, never again. My neighbour and I set about digging a gate post out. Final hole was 6 feet diameter and 5 feet deep. Two rails back to back, bent at 90 degrees each and concreted in. That would explain when it didnt move when he tried with the tractor to move it, by accident.
