This is one of those "What's going on here?" posts. The track is to be found in the bay Platform at Princess Risborough station.
Now, I understand that re-using old track in sidings is perfectly normal and sensible but I assumed that any electrical bits would be cleaned off the sleepers first. Those look like pots to support rails for electrification.
More to the point, there are pots inside and outside the rails. This presumably means the track panel came from the London Underground system. Can that happen? Do LU sell old track to Network Rail?
It's a mystery - can anyone clear it up?
