Another guy wire. This one had no rust on it whatsoever. This shot is on top of the little hillside looking right down at where the tracks would emerge from the tunnel. Photo Sam Lewit on 5/9/04

SN gave WRM a whole boxcar load of cut off wire ends (for the 3 bolt clamps). I've stripped hundreds of those. It's not rusty because the galvanizing is holding out on that one. WRM's supply is a mixed bag. the giveaway is if the wire is bendable. The modern guy wire is very hard to bend but SN (and WRM) use soft stuff custom made for us.
