    Default Good use for railway spikes!

    Timber was Australian blackwood - very nasty to breathe but great to work with!

    Merry Christmas to Melbourne, Australia !

    Where do you get the RR spikes ?

    and how long does it take to drive the entire "outback road" from east to west ???
    The decimal point seems to be the most important on the z axis... x & y not so much....

    If you go across the desert its 10 days and you probably wont be seen again. You pinch the spikes off old railway lines ( so I'm told!) Australia is a huge country with far more open spaces than the USA. No one is allowed to own a beach thank heavens.
