EDWARD ORONIN AND HENRY SHIELDS, OF HOMESTEAD, PENNSYLVANIA.

METALLIC TIE.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Eatent No. 570,005, dated October 27, 1896.

Application filed. February 6, 1896. $erial No. 578,182. (No model.)

T0 at whom it may concern.-

Be it known that we, EDWARD ORoNIN and HENRY P. SHIELDs, of Homestead, in the county of Allegheny and State of Pennsylvania, have invented a new and useful Improvement in Metallic Ties, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, forming part of this specification, in which Figure l is a perspective view showing the end portion of one of our improved metallic ties with the rail secured thereto. Fig. 2 is a side elevation of the same, partly broken away. 7

Our invention relates to the metallic ties employed for supporting railroad-rails, and is designed to provide a simple, cheap, and efiective device of this character which can be readily made from rolled shapes, and is provided with simple and effective means for securing the rail thereto.

In the drawings, in which similar numerals indicate corresponding parts, 2 is the tie, which consists of a body portion 3 in the form of a channel-beam, having oppositely-project ing upper flanges 4. The web portion of this beam rests upon the bed of the road and is preferably provided with transverse ribs or projections 5, which enter the ballast and prevent longitudinal movement of the tie. To the tie is secured a cover-plate 6, one plate being provided at each end of the tie or, if desired, the plate extending the entire length of the tie. This plate is provided with depending ribs or flanges 7 and 8, arranged in pairs at each side of the plate and arranged to inclose the vertical edge portions of the flanges 4 upon the channels. Between these ribs the plate is serrated, these serrations interfitting with corresponding serrations upon the upper face of the flanges 4, and when the plate is laid in the proper position it is secured in place by the trough or channel shaped pieces 9 Whose horizontally-extending flanges pass over the upper face of the plate and the lower face of the flange upon the channelbeam, respectively, thus causing the serrations to engage each other securely and preventing any movement of the cover-plate. To secure each trough-shaped piece 9 in place,

' we employ a lag-screw 10 or similar device,

- which passes through the base of the trough into the rib or flange 8 of the cover-plate. To secure the rail to the metallic cover-plate, we provide the U-shaped bolts 11, having at one end heads which bear upon the base of the rail, while with the other end, which projects up through the cover-plate, engages a nut 12. The inner leg of the U is shorter than the outer leg, and upon screwing the nut downwardly the outer leg is raised and the inner leg swung downwardly, the bolt fulcruming upon the lower edge of the hole through the cover-plate.

We preferably employ a nut-lock 13 to hold the nut in place, this look consisting of a flat strip of metal bent upwardly at one end to engage the side of the nut and downwardly at the other to engage the end of the coverplate.

To provide for the securing of awooden tie or beam in the channel, which wooden tie may extend outwardly beyond the end of the metallic tie and form a support for a side switch, planking, 860., we form in the top plate suitable holes 14, through which spikes may be driven into the wooden tie lying within the channel-beam, so as to hold it securely in position.

Many changes may be made in the form and arrangement of the parts without departing from our invention, since \Ve claim- A metallic railway-tie comprising a channel-beam having oppositely-extending upper flanges, said flanges having serrated upper EDWARD ORONIN. HENRY P. SHIELDS.
