Sharp like a razor blade ( Brazil)
Author: pedrop

Hi, I took this picture on MRS tracks of Paraopeba Line in Moeda siding in 2006. It shows a big string of rail profile as the result of the wear produced by heavy ore trains. The string is sharp like a razar blade.

These rail snakes could get quite a few feet long and would cause intermittent track indications when they rattled across the track. Got me quite a bit of overtime at Metrolink walking track looking for these buggers.

They ether never had a rail lubricator or let the grease run out.
