    It's great David! I love the rusty detail! My husband says it looks like a spike.

    It does indeed Jill, except it was attached to a much larger impliment (this being just a bolt), that had a handle on it that you see on railway lines - aha! Points! It's the apparatus to change the points! (I knew it would come back to me eventually)
  • borealnz said:
    LOL David, I'm glad you remembered what it was -even I know what points are :-)

    Great composition and light David. Nice one!
  • David de Groot said:
    Oh I knew what points were, just couldn't remember the name ;-)

    Thanks Chris. I took this to see what the tele-macro was like on the 70-200 f/4 L I was borrowing.

    I should have taken a shot of the whole points apparatus but didn't think of that at the time.
