Finding gold at a Automotive Swap Meet

Never know what you will find at Automotive Swap Meets 

∞∞ Automotive Swap Meets are where everybody brings {supposedly} automotive related items for sale or barter, but sometimes, you can find unusual things other than car related.
On one occasion I met a vendor with a wooden box filled with, well, I don’t know what they were. The vendor spotted me looking at these odd nails and came over and said, do you know what they are? .. Nope.

He told me the story of when Great Western Rail Company pulled up all the ties behind his house. He had his son’s remove all these Date Nails (he called them) from discarded ties. I did notice all these odd nails had numbers imposed on the head and it wasn’t like 1905, it was just 05, and that was the year that the railroad kept track of when that tie was installed or serviced on the tracks.

Well, that made total sense, so I bought the whole box with all these different dates on them. Now going back to my computer to do a little research on these nails, I did find this railroad company long gone from these parts and you know, one computer link takes you to another, but here is a story I didn’t expect.

Getting off Track with the story

When a railroad worker was working on top of a caboose, on a moving train no less, and forgot to look at the underpass coming up, well he was just swept off the car to his death, and the story doesn’t end there.
The other link tells the story of this #railroad worker and other shadows still walking the line after 100 years. Now, I don’t know why ghosts appear or roam at any particular place but maybe just an “unexpected demise… “Just maybe”.

These dated tie nails come from the same section of railway that this poor soul and possibly others are haunting/roaming or just plain … hanging around?

Anyway, this line is documented by the Paranormal Society as being haunted by abnormal activity.  Check out their U-tube video. These date nails are a piece of history and maybe a little on the spooky side to boot.

∞∞You never know what you find at these swap meets and with a little history, that’s a bonus.

(Note)…. Old Date Nails like most unusual things are collectables; however these collectors are in short supply unless you have a very crazy story behind those nails like, from the railway line of the famous (1900 “Dalton Gang” train robbery, Butch Cassidy) or haunted ones, other than that, they are just unusual nails with a number on them. 

Never know what you can find at these Swap Meets.

    Это реальные работы или всё-таки фотошоп. Просто сама хочу сделать себе
    перманент. Ищу мастера и наткнулась на нее.
    Все мои подруги, кто делал перманент ходят с не очень естественными, а иногда даже с очень неестественными бровями.
    А тут такие шикарные работы. всё натурально смотрится. Просто высший пилотаж. Поэтому засомневалась в реальности.
    Вобщем Кто что скажет?
    Мастер делает перманент бровей, губ и межресничку, микроблейдинг бровей. Мастер опытный.
