120 Foot Rails

120 Foot Rails

Laid at Holme near Peterborough, twice as long as standard sections used by the London & North Eastern Railway, hoping for smoother running of the trains. On account of their additional length and weight – they are the longest in the world manufactured in one piece – have given rise to new problems in handling, the question of expansion is one that will have to be carefully watched. This was taken from an old newspaper dated 29th January 1937.
