Ron Carlson General Is that 60lbs rail?!? I thought the 80lbs rail on the DAVP looked skinny! 4/5/2017 3:33:39 AM
Joshua Harkness General Ron, I'm not sure on the weight of the rail here. Most of the rail on the HRRC is dated 1922 and weighs 120lbs. I assume that this in the same, as the 120lbs rail was the standard of the time on the NYNH&H, though it's possible Guilford could have redone the tracks here more recently with lighter rail. 4/5/2017 12:41:25 PM
