I recently got a piece of rail on Purdue University campus in West Lafayette, IN that was covered under the road and I'm wanting to know if the markings on the side can tell me anything about the age of the rail? The markings are as follows: R.A-B. O.H 8030 ILLINOIS Any information or suggestions on where to look would be appreciated! I know that there were electric trolleys operating in Lafayette and West Lafayette from 1880 to 1940 but I don't think these rails are that old. There was also a power plant on campus that got coal by rail. Thanks for any help I can get.
