Default New Rails for RJCarolinas line

It's been reported that near Chadburn, some new, welded rails have been put in place.

And, that early next year, trains with modern heavy duty rails will be bringing in more rails to be welded together.

No details yet on exactly where the rail replacements are going to be, or the total length of track replacements, but I'm sure will will find out later on.

I know early in this thread, it was pointed out that the line had bolted, and not welded rails, and also that the roadbed was not in good condition. Over on Facebook, the improvement of welded rails has been discussed, and also, the condition of the roadbed, said to be weakend by the recent excess rain was also mentioned.
