A protective coating on the exposed surface of creosoted sleepers was shown to increase the life of the sleeper. The efficiency of each coating compound tried has been judged by its ease of application, its adherence to the creosoted sleeper, and the ability of the coating to remain in a plastic condition in all weather conditions. The behaviour of the coatings under test has varied considerably, some having almost eliminated cracking and splitting, but others having had next to no effect.
