Today while out Benchmarking I wondered several times about the info said that the benchmark was 8 feet south of Pole 255+01..and 3 1/2 feet north of Pole 257+05. We had found pole 255 & 257 but didn't know what to do. I asked a railroad worker and he said that 01 is equal to 140 feet so 255+01 would be marker 255 plus 140 feet (148 feet south..in case 1) and 257+05 would be marker 257 plus (140 time 5) or 700 feet...or in case 2..703 1/2 feet north of 257...interesting!
