    This ground signal is painted black, all ones I had seen previously were white.

    The complicated looking gubbins needed to move and lock a turnout!

    Spaced between the concrete posts the guides were on steel strips.

    In the background of some of the pictures can be seen some white liquid nitrogen tanks. These have been here quite a while, and small trees are growing amongst them!

    I snapped them through a dirty train window as we were passing on the way back to Lincoln.

    Alan, the right hand car in the top photo appears to be supported by AAR trucks. Is this a possibility, or am I suffering once more from "Old-Timers" Syndrome?

    Hank, a lot of our freightcars use US style trucks these days, as Thrall built a lot of them [​IMG]

    What a great place to watch trains! You are so lucky.

    I have a hard time getting used to seeing those signals on such short masts.

    Is the industry that used them gone? Do they scrap cars as fast in England, as they do in the USA?

    Alan-

    I'm interested in a brief tutorial on "Sleepers." I can see wood, and concrete in the photos. Was steel ever used? How do they treat wood ties to prevent rot? Over here, creosote is history...

    :D

    Shows from L to R Steel, Wood and Concrete in use, the wooden ones are just bridging between a section laid with steel and one with concrete.

    Steel ones have been used recently, we had a thread about them on here somewhere......let me check! [​IMG]
