Replacement rail at Palmer MA
Author: NixonRocks

I stopped by Palmer MA to see if there was any action, I just missed the westbound Lake Shore Limited but I noticed something even more interesting
The manufacturer and date stamp on the new and replacement rail lined up perfectly as they laid side by side
The new was manufactured by Nippon in 2020, the old was from Bethlehem Steelton 1998
Hard to believe such young rail was replaced

22 years on mainline rail. Maybe not so young? Great candidate for replacing branchline or yard rail that is decades older.
Just saying.

Apparently the plan is to install the old rail in the yard where it's sorely needed...

That tie second from the left looks like it also needs to be replaced.
