I recall that the WP&Y still had lots of stubs in the late 50's. ( Not personally, but through a back issue of MR that featured a J.Armstrong article about it ). The reason given was that a stub cannot be so easily blocked by snow and ice as a tongue is.
Had a garden rr with a friend some yrs. ago, made all the stubs, and true, winter operation did not need much of turnout cleaning, almost nil.
