SW7241 : Old Railway Track

taken 8 years ago, near to Carharrack, Cornwall, Great Britain

Old Railway Track
Old Railway Track
Sections of the track of the Redruth and Chacewater Railway. The track was not laid on wooden sleepers, but rather on granite "chairs" set in the ground. In this shot there are actually two generations of track. Nearer the camera the track is the original style, from when the wagons were horse-drawn. Further from the camera the track is of a heavier cross section, installed when steam locomotives replaced horses.
