Does anyone recognize this rail?

Post by Adirondack » Sun Apr 12, 2020 7:11 pm

Hi folks. This has been in my collection for a few years now. IIRC it was produced by a gentleman who owned an aluminum window company, and had them run on his factory line. Unfortunately, that is all I remember. Is it still available?

The rail is approx. 1 5/8" tall, and the fishplates match perfectly.

Thanks

Chris

A little locomotive with 4 wheels on the track is a lot more fun
than a 1/2 finished one with 16 wheels on the bench!

Looks a little like crane rail, but if it's aluminum probable not....
