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. The 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. Now this next picture is an example of a rail fence. These 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”. 😀
