Remarks & Notes 
Compromise When rails of two different sizes need to be joined, a compromise must be achieved - thus the compromise joint. This unique joint bar allows rail of different web thickness, height and head width to be joined together while keeping the gage side and running surfaces of the rail aligned. Today this type of joint is created by welding two different rail sizes together and thus eliminating the use of a compromise joint bar.

Do you ever get the feeling as a model railroader, that you just might be creating something not "prototypical?" Same here.

Pictures of things often unseen in the world of railroading. Interesting equipment, operations, and people that help the railroad go around.
