    I personally think it is way too light for RR rail. My grandfathers barn was built in 1872. It had a rail along the top with wheels and a pulley system that I never saw used when I lived there. it went outside a door in the front top of the barn. Just another idea. Congrats on the silver

    It looks like the rail I see sometimes around mine shafts.

    since it's just a short piece, my guess would be some kind of mine track. They even used small track like that in factories. Or..........

    A lot of older guys had pieces like that around to use as anvils, I have one that was my grandfathers...

    Just a wild guess..

    Looks like a piece of track off an old hay trolley to me . To light for a train rail

    Remember its not the treasures we find or the length of the journey. But the fact that when we are done we can look back at our life and smile with a satisfied feeling that we enjoyed the trip. So always "Keep Swinging And Keep Smiling"

    Possibly a section of light rail from an old narrow gauge line. Maybe a lumber road.

    Sections of rail were often used on farmsteads as poor-man's anvils

    Old track

    I am sure it was an old hay trolley. Used to move hay around the top of an old Dutch style barn.

    as expected____y'all know your stuff. the farm dates to 1686, there is a current rail line within 1/4 mile, but the size fits right for light duty farm service---back for more today>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>calling all Colonial silvers--I'm comin' :--)
