Canadian Rustic Rail

What do bat control specialists do when the bats are hibernating?  Well, in the case of one employee (Nick), he salvages historic railway items from abandoned railway lines. The majority of the items are from Grey-Bruce-Owen Sound. At one time, CPR and CNR used to run through the area. The treasures, collected, undergo multiple steps which may include, cleaning, cutting, drilling, forming and are treated with a rust inhibitor. Each item is a one of a kind treasure with lots of pits, blemishes and patina.  These items are a great addition to timber frame homes, steampunk decor or whatever you can dream up.
