    Farmers and Ranchers used discarded crossties and bridge timbers from the rail lines. Many of them still retain their nails and id tags. Maybe one of you nailers can id the AKS brass tag for me. I think the 26 nails are SF.

    Santa Fe RR treatment tag and CF&I nails. Thanks to my nail buddies.

    Still can't post in the comment section......
