The cast iron fish-bellied rails, seen here at the Cromford and High Peak Railway workshop inspection pit at High Peak Junction on 26th May 2018, are probably the oldest length of railway line in the world still in its original position. Made by the Butterley Company possibly before 1850 these rails are suported on stone blocks, and are cast with the lettering C&HPR Co.
