Were they using Hayes (sp?) bumpers then or
still the stacks of wood with dirt around them?
Actually, there are still plenty of industrial sidings, small yards, and team
tracks that use earth and timber bumpers, as well as piles of stone, log
piles, concrete slabs, derailers..... there are (and always have been) many things
used for this purpose. They might not all look pretty, but they still work.
