Good eyes. Good mystery.Here you find numbers hand painted on stones or stone walls. Think it has something to do with the infrastructure below or around, or surveying, or ....

Dina, I suspect these marks were made on the wood before they were placed on the ground for the railroad, possibly one hundred years ago. But it's hard to know for sure.Petrea, I liked the elements of plant and stone, the wood likely rot-resistant redwood. I nearly missed the sinking sunlight on this, just barely visible.Thank you both, dear sisters.
Nice to have the "aunties" together here. :)

PA, I just found out this past weekend that these are not as old as I thought. They're 1995 vintage replacement ties, stamped by the makers like a sort of "freshness date". Sadly, it would be hard for hobos to get here. We all hope the next decade will see a return of actual use.Thanks!
