Mending wood fence rails


I've got some breaks in the middle of some crossrails on a wood privacy fence, and was wondering what everyone thinks the best way and least time consuming way to fix. Or would just removing the old one from the pickets and renail be best.

Anything done right the first time is often times not the least time consuming way to fix.

it's a simple 3 rail wood fence like this one
the break is right in the middle of the top rails.

this would sound like the simplest fix to me. now if the boards/pickets are in bad shape them you may want to rebuilt the entire panel.

Good luck!
