  1. You know that’s just amazing. We had railway sleepers on the farm when I was growing up too. My grandfather bought them when the Clonmel to Thurles via Fethard line closed. And some of them were heavy beggers too. But I’ve not seen a real one in years, and amazing that one lasted 50 years at least since that line near you closed.
