RAILWAY-TIE.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 769,074, dated August 30, 1904.

. Application filed June 8, 1904. Serial No, 211,634.- (No model.) i

To all'whom it may concern: 7

Be it known that I, GEORGE W. GULLEDGE, a citizen of the United States, residing at Briartown, in the Cherokee Nation, Indian Territory, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Railway-Ties, of which the following is a specification.

This invention relates to railway-ties, and pertains especially to the class of metallic ties containing wooden or other blocks to which the railway-rails are secured.

The object of the invention is to provide a railway-tie of such novel and peculiar con struction that the boxes for holding the wooden blocks are elevated above the base of the tie, so as to permitoperating bolt-nuts forholding the blocks in :the boxes and to allow the ballast to be filled in between the boxes and the base of the ties.

A further objectof the invention is to provi'de a railway-tie having wood-holding boxes of such peculiar construction that the wood may be allowed more space for swelling and that the wood maybe more conveniently placed and removed. 7

In the accompanying drawings, forming part of this application, Figurel is a side elevation showing my improved tie partially ballasted and one of the blocks in movable position. Fig. 2 is a perspective view with the blocks removed. Fig. 3 is a section on the line 41 m, Fig. 1. Fig. 4: is a section on the line y y, Fig. 1. Fig. 5 is a section on the line a a, Fig. 1. Fig. 6 is a side elevation of a modification.

The same numeral-references denote the same parts throughout the several views of the drawings.

The tie-base 1 has a central vertical web 2 extending throughout the length of the tiebase and provided with braces 3, inclined from said base and terminating near the top of the web flush with the sides thereof. The ends 4 of the web are thicker than the central or main portion and are preferably beveled at the sides or wedge-shaped, so as to afford increased strength at the ends of the tie. The boxes 5 are located in the web 2, so as to leave a space between the bottom 6 and the tie-base l for the filling in of the ballast 7. The boxes have a closed outer end 8, an open inner. end 9, from which the web 2 inclines at 10. and closed sides 11. The boxes are supported from the tie-base by legs 12, flush with the sides of the boxes and extending into the sides of the web 2, and the bottoms of the boxes have bolt-holes 13 therethrough and a notch or recess 14 therein atthe open end for the insertion of a suitable implement to raise the blocks. The wooden blocks 15 have apertures 16 to register with the holes 18 for screw-bolts 17, provided with spike-heads,

and by means of which and suitable nuts 18, operated in the aforesaid space, the blocks and rails are secured to the boxes. Blocks of paperor other suitable material may be used in lieu of the wooden blocks.

Referring to the modification shown in Fig. 6, the supporting-legs 19 of the box 20 extend from the corners of the box flush with the ends thereofto the Web 21, so as to leave a rectangular opening or space 22 between the legs, the box-bottom, and the base of the tie for the filling thereinto of the ballast.

It will be observed that it is only necessary to remove the portion of ballast about the nuts in order to operate them; that upon removal of the bolts the blocks may be easily tilted or raised out of the boxes from the open end thereof, as clearly shown in Fig. 1

of the drawings; that the open end provides for expansion and contraction of the metal, as well as the blocks, and that owing to the elevation of the boxes they may be thoroughly ballasted thereunder.

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

1. In a railway-tie, the combination, with the tie-base, a web extending the length of the base, and the blocks, of the boxes'positioned in the web to leave a space between them and the said base and having an open inner end from which the web inclines, the legs joined to the web, base and boxes for supporting the latter, and means extending through the boxes and the blocks to connect the latter to the boxes and to secure the rails to the blocks.

2. In a railway-tie, the Combination, with the tie-base, the web having tapering ends, and the wooden blocks, of the boxes having an inner open end and positioned in the web 5 to leave a space between them and the said base, legs joined to the web, base and boxes to support the latter, screw-bolts having spikeheads and extending through the blocks and boxes, and suitable nuts operated in the said space. 10

In testimony whereof I afiix my signature in presence of two witnesses.
