Hi All



They say there is a prototype for everything.



Took this photo at Fareham Station Hampshire (they have just re-laid the junction there and some of the track in the station.)







(The original photo is the right way up, don't know why it gets rotated when uploaded to my gallery).



I have examples of Bullhead rail joined to Flat Bottom rail with fishplates, but nothing like this before.



It appears to be one continuous length of rail, morphing from Bullhead to Flat Bottom, I suspect the two rails are welded, but "you can't see the join".

Forged transition rail you most often see them where CEN60 and 113A meet, in a mainline. The 113A to 95lb Bullhead ones are generally used in places where a composite weld or even a set of junction fishplates would be a more economic alternative.
