Hey everybody, I am working on park crew at my local hill and we are making a few rails out of recycled materials. What we're using is steel track pieces that were used for raising boats in and out of water. They are each about 8 feet in length and we have about 6 pieces for use. The diameter of the square tubing is 2 1/2 inches and has rounded edges. We are currently angle grinding all surface rust off and it is working surprisingly well! They should slide like a dream. We can weld any shapes together but we are undecided on which types of rails to make, that's where you all come in!
Comment any ideas you have for features to build!
Here is an example of the track. (Plywood may be used as skirting)
