Kenosha Pass, CO, track segment
Posted by MidlandMike on Tuesday, March 14, 2017 9:08 PM

There is a short lenght of NG track at Kenosha Pass.  It looks like the stem of a wye.  Is this a remanent of the original C&S, or is it a recreation, like the segment on Boreas Pass?

I just found out it is a re-creation.

With the same hysterical treated hex head/hardware store bolts in the anglebars (strap steel)

Does anyone have a URL for this unusual steel treatment process?

I assume they are galvanized for long life.

The kind of historical quality I'd expect from the "Fedearl Highway Administration" (see the original link)

john: Instead of a common, plain, mild steel, forged oval head small bolt. Here is this shiny hot dipped stainless thing with a hex head and fender washers.
