now generally in use. 10 Another important object of my invention is to frequently must be replaced entirely at great cost if seriously impaired through accident or wear.

Other important objects of my invention will 20 be apparent from a reading of the following desoription in connection with the drawings, wherein for purposes of illustration I have shown a preferred embodiment of my invention.

In the drawings:-

25 Figure 1 is a top plan View of an embodiment of the invention.

Figure 2 is a transverse vertical sectional View taken through Figure 1.

Figure 3 is a bottom plan view of one of the 30 plates.

Figure 4 is a transverse vertical sectional view taken through the laterally outward end of one of the central plates.

Figure 5 is a plan view of one of the stay-rod 35 clamps.

Referring in detail to the drawings, the numerals 4 refer generally to the railway ties upon which the rails 5 and 6 are laid in conventional manner, the said rails having the outer base 40 flanges 1 and the inner base ilanges 8.

In accordance with the present invention there is mounted at each end of the ties and spaced therefrom masonry retaining walls about as long as the width of the crossing contemplated, each Laid in place between the retaining walls I and II and the outer sides of the respective rails and 6 are the outer plates I3, I4, and between 50 the rails 5 and 6 the central plates I5 and I6.

ing upper surface, which upper surface is pro- 55 vided with suitable roughening or anti-skid for- (Cl. 23S-8) mations as the builder may require. From the top I1 depend the side'anges I8 which have parallel 'thereto ribs or other reinforcing arrangements at spective outer plates I3, I4 is cut away at the upper part as indicated by the numeral I9 to provide proper clearance with the head 20 of the rail to define a shoulder 2| which engages the web of the rail, the underside of the rail head 23, and to rest upon the base flange 1, as clearly indicated in Figure 2.

The similar central plates I5 and I6 are generally rectangular in form and include the top 22 from which depend the side iianges 23 and the to provide proper clearance with the rail joint bolts 3|, and the outer plates I3 and I4 are For preventing spreading of the rails at the crossing extra stay-rods 34 and 35 are provided which have thereon clamps 36 which are trav- 20 tral plates have been ersed by the ends of the stay-rods and are clamped in place on the base flange of the rails as shown in Figure 2 by nuts 31 on the outwardly projecting ends of the stay-rods.

It is obvious that the outer plates I3 and I4 may be lifted out of place and replaced with new plates when Wear or accident impairs the outer plates, and that the replacement plates may be simply dropped into place in the positions indicated in the drawings.

It is further to be noted that upon withdrawal of the locking bar or rod 28 the inner ends of the central plates I5 and I6 may be separated and the f l) central plates simply lifted out by new central plates when desired. It`

of place and. re-

placed is obvious that after the central plates I5 and I'E have been put into position, the rod 28 is slidinto place in the grooves 21 when the tops of the cenbrought flush with each other.

Although I have shown a preferred embodiment of my invention,

and described herein it is to be definitely understood that I do not desire to limit the application of the invention thereto, and any change or changes may be made in the materials, and in the structure and arrangement of the parts, within the spirit of the invention and the scope of the subjoined claim.

What is claimed isz- In combination, a railroad track including a pair of rails, a connecting member between the bases of said rails to prevent spreading of the rails, a pair of load crossing plates between the rails at the said connecting member, said plates abutting each other at their inner edges, and abutting the rails at their edges opposite to the abutting edges, said plates being disposed in inclined arched positions with their high point 'where the"plates abut each other, a groove in the abutting inner vertical surfaces of the plates and a rod seated in said groove to maintain the abutting edges of the plate in fixed relative position.

JOHN J. GREELY.
