Got rail? For those unfamiliar with CWR (Continuous Welded Rail), here it is! Most mainline rail these days comes in quarter-mile stretches. The rail is pre-assembled (i.e. pre-welded) before being transported to its final destination on the ties, under a train! This is how the rail is moved around. Each rail you see on this train is one long, continuous piece of rail.
