I know that some companies that buy out other companies use the same name with the new name, like the record player that I have. It used to be Victrola, but now it is RCA Victrola. as they bought the Victrola company.
The weight per yard is stamped on it. - 80# rail weighs 80lbs./yard for example. Height of rail should also equal width of bottom flange. I'd be glad to sell you all the three foot pieces you want from a historic local railroad. Light weight rail from a narrow gauge line (1890's)or heavy weight from a standard gauge. $150 a piece (+$100 s&h) and you can resell them on ebay and double your money or better! Or come and pick up a truckload!Went on a bottle dig at a 1906 farm on Saturday and got a nice load of bottles and other things as well. What appeared to be just an old steel beam that was laying on an old house foundation turned out to be a nice 3 1/2 foot piece of railroad. It says: Carnegie-ET-USA-1917-lllll . I have been into locomotives and steam locomotives since I was little and this was a nice farm find to me! It weighs probably more than 80 lbs. and i probably took 15 breaks trying carry it to my car, but i made it! I don't know if these are rare (saw on E bay people selling them for $300-$400).View attachment 215633View attachment 215644 I View attachment 215634View attachment 215632
