.TIE Am) RAIL-FASTENER.

Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented July 2, an.

Application filed February 23, 1912. Serial No. 679,258.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, ANToNI KozAozKA, a subject of the Emperor of AustriaHungary, residing at Oil City, in the county of Ve nango and State of Pennsylvania, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Ties and Rail-Fasteners, of which the folilowing isa specification, reference drawing.

T h1s invent-1011 relates to ties and rail fasteners, and the objects of my invention are to provide a concrete tie with novelrail fasteners for positively retaining rails upon the tie, and toprovide a rail fastener that can be repeatedly adjusted to compensate for wear. v

Further objects of .my invention are to provide a strong and durable concrete tie that can be used as a substitute for wooden ties, and to accomplish the aboveresults by a mechanical construction that is ineX- pensive to manufactureand easy. to install in the roadbed of a railway.

I attain the above objects by a mechanical construction that will be hereinafter specifically described and then claimed.

Reference will now be had to the drawing wherein Figure 1 is a longitudinal sectional view of a portion of the tie in accordance with this invention, and Fig. 2 is a perspective view of the same. v

A tie in accordance with this invention comprises a concrete .body 1 the same dimensions as an ordinary wooden tie. top of the body, adjacent to the ends thereof, is provided. withdepressed seats 2 for the base flanges 3 of rails 4:. The concrete body, I .at the edges of each seat 2 and intermediate the side walls thereof, is provided with vertical recesses 5 for. spikes 6 that have heads 7 overhanging and'engaging thebase flanges 8 of the rails t. The spikes 6 are rectangular in cross-section and contiguous to the lower ends thereof are iad therein. to the accompanying openings 8. Each end of the concrete body 1 is provided with a longitudinal tapering opening 9 that intersects the recesses 5. Each opening accommodates a tapering key 10 having a head 11. The key l0rwhen driven in the opening 9 passes throiwh the openings 8 and the wedging action if the key lO draws the spikes 6 into the recesses 5 and clamps the spike. heads 7 upon the base flanges 3 of the rail't. The head 11 of the key 10 permits of a crow-bar or other instrument being inserted between the end of, the tie and said head for withdrawing the key.

lVhat I claim -is- A tie and rail fastener comprising an oblong body having the top thereof in proximity to each end provided with a depressed seat for the reception of the base of a rail, said body further provided with vertically disposed recesses opening at the sides of each rail seat, spikes mounted in said recesses and having the heads thereof capable of extending over and engaging .the base of a rail when mounted in saidfseat, said spikes provided with openings, said body having each of its ends formed with a longitudinally extending tapering opening, each of said openings, intersecting the recesses associating with the seat, a longitudinally extending tapering, key driven in each of said longitudinal -0penings and extending through the openings of a plurality of spikesfor drawing the spikes into said vertical recesses whereby the heads "of the spikes will be brought. into clamping 0ngagement with the base of the rail, and a right angularly disposed head carried by the outer end of said key.
