Well loading 1/4 mile of track or 1/2 mile of rail was a BACK KILLER when all done 1 stick at a time. The 30 ft long 25lb rails weighed 250 lbs each.

All three loads were done by just (2) guys for 12 hrs.

The experience was so bad that we did not want to take any pictures to remind us of just how bad it really was.

This rail will be utilized for or 2ft gauge mine equipment.

Our future rail project is 40 & 60lb rail which is about 1-1/2 of track for our 36" & 42" gauge mine equipment. (WE WILL NOT BE LOADING THIS BY HAND)

Seriously, before I drove full-time for the company I work for, I pulled 100 lb. boxes of ceramic tile all day. I'm sure you're hurtin'.

We do machinery moving on a daily basis but loading 20,000 lbs of rail in one day was a true killer.
