Yes, that's where they were cut, right on the old welds.
That's where I saw the yellow scribbling.
well spotted, kuldalai.

When one sees  track or sometimes lineside boxes sprayed YELLOW or sleepers that indicates that that component is to be removed, come out, be replaced etc .  

So relay box YELLOW , to come out .  Fishplated joint YELLOW to be cut out .  RAIL section yellow on side face - replace.
Reclaimed rail yellow on ends, to be cropped at end to either cut out a weld, or cut off a worn rail head (where jointed).

Coming down off the Nth Melb flyover off the RRL  look at the 6 Metro tracks for a sea of yellow markings at Franklin St indicating replaceement of rail, K crossings, plated joints etc .

Have a look at my last two ill-fated posts at 1757 and 1801 yesterday 21/12 and see if you see a problem.

If you don't see a problem - 'I give up'.

But what did you do, just type words, or try pasting something?

I just typed words like a thousand times in the past.
Not to worry perhaps RP was just having a bad day but without a shadow of doubt it will be deemed to have been my fault! ............. !!!!!!!!!! Evil or Very Mad

Agree with Valvegear, 574M did you see the weight or age of the rail, stamped on it, anywhere ?

Wasn't looking for date stamps, explicitly. I thought I saw 1947 somewhere but not sure. Some ends had yellow scribbling, date and time of weld cut, I suspect.

It is rail in quite good condition as others say, and also, CWR as well. All of it was cut hither and thither as you can see.

I am surprised it is being done in this fashion, instead of being recovered by a rail train, for example.
It's in very long segments; how do you transport that?
574M
Would have been impossible for a rail train to get in there, unless they relaid a connection from the Tocumwal line.
