Week 12, Theme 12 – Fences and or Rails

When I initially saw this theme, “Fences and or Rails” on the challenge list I said it would be a “piece of cake” to fulfill.  Wrong!  It took a little more work than I expected, but I think I’ve got my rails and fences in a row now.  In this first picture, which includes rails and a fence, the rails are 4 feet 8 1/2 inches apart. GC1_5763 brdr 1The code on the inside of the rail in the next picture indicates that a 3 foot piece of that steel rail weighs 115 pounds and that it was rolled at a Bethlehem Steel Plant in Steelton, PA in January 2000. GC1_5760 brdr 1Now this next picture is an example of a rail fence. GC1_5737 edit 1 brdr 1These fence posts are approximately 8 feet apart and each of the rails probably weigh about 20 pounds.

So, here you have my answer to “Fences and or Rails”.  😀

  1. You definitely captured both rails and fences. The first one had both in it and the photo having the detail in the rail is something that most people would never see, was very informative. well done.
