The limited experience of the Great Western Railway with pot type concrete sleepers is reported. The pot type is less than half the weight of the transverse pattern and requires less reinforcement. The pot sleeper weighs 246 lb when chaired and contains 5.75 lb of reinforcement. The design of the pot sleeper is illustrated. Thus far no abnormal maintenance has been required on the track laid on pot sleepers.
