I was wondering what was the length of individual rails used in the 1950s by BR were. Wikipedia states BR used 60 foot sections in 1950, but I never know if what I read is correct. I'm trying to calculate how many rails / sleepers my old 9 mile 284 yard long line used. I'm told 1,800 sleepers per chains, and the are 80 chains in a mile - so that's easy to calculate, but what about the track length? I've read various things, 60 foot, 65 foot, 45 foot etc - can anyone give me an idea of what is was? This was a branch line by the way. Thanks.
