There was no time for Cynthia to talk to her husband, who was busy serving breakfast to the late sleepers while she showed Maria, by hand communication, the upstairs chores of Bird Song.
The medics have your anti-sleepers ready.
"Lana, get your anti-sleepers and meet me in the commander's quarters," General Greene called, poking his head into the hub.
How many of the anti-sleepers have you been taking?
Doc, I need some meal bars, anti-sleepers, and pain killers.
She carried little else than the lockbox, her micro, and enough meal supps and anti-sleepers for two weeks.
Anti-sleepers and appetite suppressants.
She'd slept only when they were safe inside the emerops facilities and downed anti-sleepers between.
She didn't expect to sleep, not with the amount of anti-sleepers in her system.
Gangaw (Messua ferrea) the Assam iron-wood, is suitable for sleepers; and didu (Bombax insigne) is used for tea-boxes and packing-cases.
The planks were of wood, often beech, a few inches wide, and were fastened down, end to end, on logs of wood, or " sleepers," placed crosswise at intervals of two or three feet.
Wooden sleepers continued to be used, the rails being secured by spikes passing through the extremities, but about 1793 stone blocks also began to be employed--an innovation associated with the name of Benjamin Outram, who, however, apparently was not actually the first to make it.
This method, however, was not found satisfactory: the projecting feet were liable to be broken off, and in 1799 or 1800 Jessop abandoned them, using instead separate cast-iron sockets or chairs, which were fastened to the sleepers and in which the rails were supported in an upright position.
They were supported on sleepers by chairs at intervals of 3 ft., and were fish-bellied between the points of support.
In turn fixed to the sleepers by two iron spikes, half-round wooden cross sleepers being employed on embankments and stone blocks 20 in.
First laid on bridges - was supported on continuous longitudinal sleepers and held down by bolts passing through the flanges, and was employed by I.
In subsequent modifications the fishes were, as they continue to be, bolted to and through the rails, the sleepers being placed rather further apart and the joint being generally suspended between them.
Thus it may fairly be said that the railway system of the United States was reconstructed between 1896 and 1905, so far as concerns rails, sleepers, ballast and the general capacity of a given group of lines to perform work.
From the falling of rails, sleepers, &c., when at work on the line .
The ballast consists of such materials as broken stone, furnace slag, gravel, cinders or earth, the lower layers commonly consisting of coarser materials than the top ones, and its purpose is to provide a firm, well-drained foundation in which the sleepers or crossties may be embedded and held in place, and by which the weight of the track and the trains may be distributed over the road-bed.
Or rather more under the sleepers, and the materials of the surface layers are often chosen so as to be more or less dustless.
If we do not get out sleepers, and forge rails, and devote days and nights to the work, but go to tinkering upon our lives to improve them, who will build railroads?
Did you ever think what those sleepers are that underlie the railroad?
They are sound sleepers, I assure you.
I am glad to know that it takes a gang of men for every five miles to keep the sleepers down and level in their beds as it is, for this is a sign that they may sometime get up again.
