    Default Sleepers (ties) from recycled plastic

    Recycled plastic as railroad sleepers, replacing old wooden sleepers. Nice.

    Been using them on the Ffestiniog initially testing them in 2014 and seems that they work, as they are using them on all track relaying. Can't really tell they are plastic unless you look hard!

    Not just Heritage either http://www.sicut.co.uk/projects/ecot...nline-sleeper/
