    I have a 24" piece of rail that came from my grandfather. He was an engineer with the Missouri Pacific. I'm now 72, and he had it in his shop as long as I can remember. I don't use it often, but when I need it, it still does the job.

    Maybe instead you could buy a little more, and build your own railroad?

    ONLY if I get to be the engineer...

    ...oh wait,....

    ....trains follow the same "trail." I'd rather drive regular vehicles and go where my whim directs me to go.

    Besides, I'd hate having to toot that horn for every dang crossing.

    I thought that's the main reason kids want to grow up and be engineers... :D

    I have a 24" piece of rail as well as a Feaster anvil. One of the good ones designed for Farrier work. I don't shoe horses but the size was perfect for my shop. Don't use it often but when it's necessary, its available.
    We had some issues in the RV that so far nobody in that repair field could repair, so did a temp repair until we can find someone to do the finished job.

    First pic is what the original cover should look like.
    Second pic is my work. The slide is much longer than the slide in the first pic, so couldn’t get it all in.

    My anvil. Built a stand from a 12” pipe flange and some angle iron.
    Went to one of the knife making shows and saw everyone had their anvils mounted to a log.
    Ask why and was told it was to reduce the “ring” when hammering on it to form knife blades.
    I don’t do that much on it so probably leave it on the steel stand.

    This week was transform a boat trailer into an atv n such hauling trailer week. Ranch foreman bought the trailer and bass boat (boat disappeared into a hole) for $50 about 3yrs ago with this project in mind. We needed to haul some four wheelers to far side of ranch last week and both of the bumper pull flatbeds were at other peoples houses so that built a fire in him to get after this project. Deck is 48” wide at front, 72” between the fenders and I think it were 92” wide at the back. Deck is 16’ long. Next we gotta flip it and weld sheet in various places to bracing we put in so there’s no slap, pop and rattle. Then we gotta build a fold down ramp. Not sure yet if we are gonna put any rail aroun the side. Maybe a low one. Maybe weld on stake pockets to have a removable rail. Idk. It’s a work in progress but much closer than when we started.
