*sleepers…are the European name for railroad ties…to which the rails are attached in proper gauge to run a train upon! Gauge is the measured distance between the inner edges of the rail head as opposed to the rail base, attached to the sleepers or ties. Standard gauge in many places including the U.S.A. is 4 feet-eight and one half inches between the rails, Other countries including South Africa use a standard gauge of 3 three feet-six inches, etc. In most places the smaller gauges (2 feet, for example, or 3 feet) are mostly used by self-contained industries such as sugar cane mills or quarrying operations, with one or two exceptions, like preserved heritage railways.—J.E.C.
