supply of steel rail

Does any one know any other suplliers of steel rail appart from the Miniature Railway Supply Co or Cromer White. We will be looking for around 4 to 5 tons of 3kg steel rail.

Thanks

Hi Roger
I'm a member of Surrey SME & we are about to construct an extension [2011-13]. Our current plan is to have rolled 10 tone x 3kg/mt rail as there is none available - even in Europe, the large sections have a flat rail head.
What is your time frame?
regards

Roger, hopefully we will be looking at a similar time frame as you, subject to our landlords agreeing our suggested route and then sorting out any planning permissions that we may need. I have spoken to Jeff Price today and he has 3kg rail in stock and is charging aoround £1900 per 1000kg plus vat which works out at around £2280. However if you purchase rail through Jeff, it is normally supplied only with appropriate quantities of Fishplates, Fishbolts and nuts. So I would be interseted to know what sort of price have been quoted. If you would like to respond off forum just in case please e-mail me at info@ehmr.org.uk. I also promise only to disclose the information amongst my fellow committe members.
