I'd say yes to that Martin. What was the context that made you post?

Hi Matt,

No particular context. It showed up on my screen in the Radio Paradise slide show:

https://legacy.radioparadise.com/rp_2s.php

This section of Templot Club is a place to post any interesting track pictures that come your way. The photographer intended it as a creative image rather than a detail record, but it can be both. Here's one of mine in a similar vein:

BR(W) 2-bolt chairs on concrete sleepers. Nuts on top to avoid corrosion of the thread. Radiused base profile to prevent stress-raisers on concrete.

cheers,

Martin.

I wonder which Australian Railway it's from.

In NSW terms it would be a 'Switch Chair' not a Plate.
Not enough shown to really pin it down. Is the mild steel chair of course.
It could be an S.R. Chair which are used on the last two sleepers before the switch toe.
They are required to brace the stock rail which has been rotated from the incline to vertical on the
preceding five sleepers.

All fun I guess.

Cheers Matt M.
