RAIL FASTENER- APPLICATION FILED FEB- B. 1915.

1,181,693. Patented. May 2,1916.

// /77 MYNR w 6 DELOS IB. STULTS, OF WAVERLY, ILLINOIS.

RAIL-FASTENER.

Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented May 2, 1916.

Application filed February 8, 1916. Serial No. 77,063.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, DnLos B. STUL'rs, a citizen of the United States, residing at Waverly, in the county of Morgan and State of Illinois, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Rail-Fasteners; and I do hereby declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same.

The object of this invention is to improve the construction of rail fastener, disclosed in Letters Patent No. 1,120,000 granted to me December 8th, 1914:, by cheapening the construction of the fastener, admitting of the same being more easily and expeditiously manufactured, and to render the fastener more efficient in operation.

Other objects will appear and be better understood from that embodiment of my invention of which the following is a specification, reference being had to the accompanying drawings forming a part thereof, in which:

Figure 1 is a detail perspective view of one end of a rail tie, and showing the improved fastener applied thereto. Fig. 2 is a vertical sectional view taken through the tie and one of the rails and through the fastener. Fig. 3 is a perspective view of one of the clamping plates of one of the fasteners.

Referring to the drawings more in detail, the letter A designates a railwaytie, and B one of the rails. The fasteners for the rails are independent, and each fastener includes a pair of clamping plates 1 and 2, which underlie the base flange of the adjacent rail and have their meeting edges located at a point approximately centrally of the longitudinal sides of the rail base. The outermost plate 1, is provided, adjacent its inner end, with a transverse slot 3, which forms an upwardly extending lip or flange 4: on the inner end of the plate 1, and the innermost plate 2 has its underside provided with a transverse slot, adjacent its outermost end, to provide the depending lip or flange 5 which is adapted to be received by the transverse slot 3 in the plate 1, and the said transverse slot in the underside of the plate 2 receives the lip or flange 4: formed on the innermost end of the plate 1.

The plates 1 and 2 have their upper surfaces provided, at points adjacent those ends which are located beyond the base flanges of the adjacent rail B, with transversely extending recesses 6, which form upstanding flanges 7 on the said ends of the plates 1 and 2, and the said recesses open through the upper surfaces of the opposite sides of the plates 1 and 2, and each recess extends beneath the upper side of the plate in which it is formed, as shown at 8, so as to provide an overlying ledge 9. Each ledge 9, has a pair of spaced rail-engaging flanges 10 formed on its upper side, which flanges, as shown in Figs. 1 and 2, are adapted to overlie the base flange of the adjacent rail to hold the rail against lateral movement. Each ledge is also provided with an opening 11, which registers with a similar opening in the lower wall of the portion 8 of the recess 6, and receives the shank of a headed spike 12, which shank pierces the tie A, and has the head thereof overlying the adjacent side of the base flange of the adjacent rail B.

Removably positioned within the recesses 66 in the plates 1 and 2 are spike-locking elements 13-13, each of which consists of an elongated plate having one longitudinal side thereof engaging against the adjacent flange 7, and has its opposite longitudinal edge abutting the adjacent longitudinal edge of the adjacent ledge 9. Each plate 13, has its inner longitudinal edge provided with a lateral extension 14L, which extends into the portion 8 of the recess 6 and engages in a notch 15 formed in the adjacent spike 12, and prevents upward movement of the spike. The plates 13 are also provided with openings 16, which register with openings 17 formed in the lower Walls of the recesses 6 and receive the shanks of spikes 18, which extend through the plates 13 and through the plates 1 and 2 and pierce the tie so as to hold the locking plates 13 against movement.

Having thus described my invention what I claim as new, is:

1. A rail tie fastener consisting of a pair of plates to be arranged beneath the rail base and each having one end extending beyond the rail base and provided with a transverse recess and having a transversely extending ledge overlying the recess, a fastening element extending through the ledge and the adjacent recess and having a notch therein, and a locking plate positioned 10 engaging flanges mounted on and carried by the ledge, and securing means extending through theledge and the plate, and a looking member positioned Within the recess and engaging said securing means.

In testimony whereof I afliX my signature 15 in presence of two Witnesses.
