Despite how indestructible rail seems when you are standing next to it or touching it, Mother Nature reminds us just how insignificant something like iron rail really is! A huge boulder that landed on the mainline here did not directly touch the siding. But the shifting dirt away from the rock push the siding past its breaking point. Both rails were snapped in half like wood matchsticks!
