There is a stack of experienced ties in Milford that have the rail-clip compatible tie plates bolted on to the tie suggesting to me they were previously used on the Green Line. Wonder why MassDOT doesn't re-use ties of this ilk on the lower speed secondary lines?
Falmouth Secondary to Otis wrote: ↑Sun Dec 08, 2019 5:27 pm Was reading Mass DOT bids and see that up to 25,000 ties are out for bid to purchase for use in Rochester, Bourne, Sandwich / Barnstable and Sheffield. Read bid details section RFR Tie updated calendar.pdf page 6 for further info. No details as to where in Bourne though, but the Falmouth Secondary line and Otis Industrial track certainly need numerous tie replacements.I see that MassDOT bids are out for where those 25,000 RR ties are to be installed as they are for the Falmouth Secondary , Cape Main and the Middleboro Subdivision.
