RAIL-JOINT.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 469,178, dated February 16, 1892.

Application filecl J'uly 6, 1891. Serial No. 398,513. (No model.)

To aZZ whom, it may concern:

Be it known that I, GEORGE G. STACY, of the city, county, and State of New York, have invented a new and Improved Rail-Joint, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description.

My invention relates to improvements in rail-joints, and is an improvement on the railjoint patented to Edward A. G. Roulstone by Letters Patent of the United States No. 313,110, dated March 3, 1885.

The object of my invention is to produce an extremely simple rail-joint which may be quickly applied to the meeting ends of rails to hold them so that they cannot move laterally or longitudinally.

To this end my invention consists in a rail-- joint constructed substantially as herein described and claimed.

Reference is to be had to the accompanying drawings, forming a part of this specification, in which similar numerals of reference inclicate corresponding parts in all the figures.

Figure 1 is a broken vertical cross-section through the joint, showing one end of the rail, taken on the line 1 1 in Fig. 2. Fig. 2 is a broken side elevation of the joint. Fig. 3 is a plan view of the same. Fig. 4 is a detail perspective view of the base-plate of the joint, and Fig. 5 is a detail perspective view of one of the angle-plates.

The joint is provided with a base-plate 10, which is adapted to be secured upon the sleepers 11 and which supports the rails 12. The base-plate has vertical flanges 13 on opposite sides, which flanges are widened in the middle, as shown at 14, and the widened portions enter the recesses 15 in the bases 16 of the angle-plates 17. These angle-plates take the place of the ordinary fish plate and the recesses 15 are produced centrally in their lower edges, so that the plates interlock with the base-plates, as described above.

It will be noticed that the end portions 18 of the angle-plates are adapted to overlap the flanges 14 of the base-plates, and these portions are recessed at the edge to provide for the insertion of the spikes 19, by which ltfie angle-plates 17 have their bases 16 shaped to fit nicely upon the flange of the rail, and the upper edges of the angle-plates are curved outward and upward, as is best shown at 20 in Fig. 1, so as to fit beneath the tread of the rail and strengthen the same. This enables the rail to be worn thin without danger, and,

-moreover, the edges of the angle-plates take much of the wear from the flanges of the car-wheels, thus saving the rail. To further strengthen the angleplates they are curved outward slightly in the center, as is shown in Fig. 1, and the plates are secured to the rails by bolts 21 in the usual manner.

The above construction of the angle-plates enables them to bear against the upper and lower portions of the web of the rail, thus greatly strengthening it, and the outward bend of the plates gives them the necessary elasticity.

When the rails are to be secured in place, the base-plate 10 is placed upon the sleepers 11, the abutting'end portions of the rails 12 are placed on thebase-plate, the angle-plates are secured on opposite sides of the rails, with their end portions 18 embracing the thickened portions 14 of the flanges 13 on the baseplate, and the spikes 19 are driven into the sleepers and through the recesses in the edges of the angle-plates. The rails will thus be held firmly together and the spikes will hold the base-plate so that it and the rails cannot creep.

Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is-

1. A rail-joint comprising a base-plate having vertical side flanges which are widened at the middle and angle-plates adapted to fit the sides of the rail, said plates having their lower edges recessed to receive the spikes and having also central recesses to receive the widened flanges of the base-plate, substantially as shown and described. 5

2. A rail-joint comprising a base-plate having vertical side flanges which are widened at the middle and angle-plates to fit the rail,

the lower portions of said angle-plates having recesses to receive the spikes and central recesses to receive the widened flanges and the upper portion of said an gle-plates being adapted to fit against the upper and lower portions of the rail-Web, the upper edges being bent outward to fit against the shoulders of th rail, substantially as described.
