There are still odd fragments to be found in the bush.

This is very heavy rail not to be confused with the lighter and
similarly-sectioned "bridge rail" used in various mines and included
in BHP steel section catalogues in weights of 25 lb/yd and 18lb/yd as
late as 1925. I have seen some of this lighter rail in the bush in NSW.
