Hmm, might have been in connection with the old very early railway line that ran along the coast, I think between Norwich-Ipswich or near the Eastern Coast of UK. The trains were very special in that they were on a sort-of stilts system, to run across the water at high tide!

I believe the old pile-drivers were used in the construction of the railway I mentioned above, where the tracks were under water at high tide.

Another coastal railway, maybe an alternative?

Brighton railway
