Application filed April 13,1906. Serial No. 811.508.

' the tie, with which is combined a fastening of a modified form of tie-plate.

that will permit of lateral adjustment of the raiis when owing to wear the same becomes necessary--such fastenings, for instance, as is shown in my application for patent filed January- 15, 1906, Serial N 0. 296,115.

My inveniton is fully shown in the accompany ng drawings, in which.

Figure 1 is a perspective view of a portion of a rail and tie, sliowing my improved tieplate and fastening infplace. Fig. 2 is a plan view of the rail, tie-plate, and fastening. Fig.

3 is a sectional elevation of the tie-plate and fastening, taken on the line a a, Fig. 2. Fig. 4 is a sectional view of a modified form of tie-plate and clip.

Fig. 6 is a view of a combination screw-bolt which I may employ in connection with my improved structure. Fig. 7 is an inverted plan view of a blank from which the tie-plates are formed; and Fig 8 is a cross-section of such blank, taken on the line b b, Fig. 7.

As is well known, the usual method of securing rails to wooden ties is by'mcans of headed spikes driven into the ties. The wear on the rails, however, necessitates a closer setting of the same at certain intervals in order to bring them back to the original gage. As the spikes are necessarily disposed in a fixed relation to the ties, the usual manner of setting up the track is to provide new spikes driven into a fresh portion of the tie and in some instances to replace the tics.

This is a matter of very great nuisance, and I propose to overcome it by providing the wooden ties with tie-plates fixed thereto 1.1)011 which the rails may rest, such tieplates having anchors or abutmcnts, between which and the flange of the rail the special form of adjustable securing-clip is :lace-d.

, In the drawing herewith, 1 reprhsents the rail, 2 an ordinary wooden tie, and 3 a tie- Fig. is a plan view plate mounted on the tie and secured thereto, upon which the rail rests. As shown in Figs. 1 and 2, this plate is secured to the tie by the screw-bolts 4. The tieplate is provided with an anchor or abutment 5,1iormed integral therewith and disposed at an angle with respect to the rail. A movable clip 6, havingan angular face 7 bearing against the inner face of this anchor or abutment, a portion 8 overlapping and bearing against the flange of the rail, and a serrated or notched upper face 9 is provided to secure the rail to the tie-plate and tie. The clip 6 is slotted at 10 for the reception of a bolt 11, hearing a fixed relation to the tie-plate, being disposed in an aperture in the same, andsaid clip is capable of movement along the abutment 5 to take up the Wear on the rail, amounting in practice to about one-quarter inch on the inner side of the head. A notched or serrated washer 12 is provided to engage thenotched or serrated face of the clip 6, and the washer is held in this engagement b a nut 13. A clip similarly constructed-is isposed on the other side of the rail; but the tie-plate is not necessarily provided with an abutment on this side.

When it is desired to take up wear, it is only necessary to release the nuts 13, raise the washers 12, release the inner cli move tli rail the desired distance latera ly, and then move the outer clip 6 along until it is wedged b tween the rail in its new osition and the a chor or abutment 5 an adjust the inner clip to the new position. After this has been rlone the washers are fastened down into engagement with the clips by the nuts 13, and said clips will be retained in the adjusted positions, firmly holding the rail in place. p

In some instances I may form an abutment by grooving the tieplate at 14, as shown in Fig.

4, instead of having the projecting anchor or abutment 5 and provide a clip with an overhanging hp fitting such groove, he structure so made being substantiall the same as that illustrated in the other drawings herewith.

Instead of having a notched or serrated washer the clips may be notched orserrated on the bottom, and the tie-plate may be provided with a complementary notched or sergures of the rated portion 16 ad acent to the anchsgor abutment 5 and the opposite edge, as shown in Fig. 5, and these notched or serrated portlons of the tie-platemay be rolled-thelisin. 1

The tie-plate is secured tothe tie by means the tie-plate for confining said ribbed porof the screw-bolts4, which are preferably of I Lions in engagement with each other.

some length and serve to hold said tie-plate rigidly in osition. if desired, the bolts 11, securing t is clips 6in place, may be provided with a screw portion 17, as shown in Fig. 6, to be driven into "the tie and afford additional securing means for said tie-plate. The heads 18 of the bolts are oval, fitting oval recesses 19 in the under side of the tie-plate to prevent turning when setting up the nuts 13.

The tie-plates which I propose to use are cut from a rolled blank, -Which is clearly shown in Fig 7. This ,blank is rolled with the anchor or abutment 5 as an integral part thereof, and the recesses 19 on the under side for the heads of the several bolts are also formed at the same operation. These re- I cesses are'afterward punched for the passage of said bolts. The blank is rolled with the recesses disposed in themanner illustrated in Fig. 7, and then such plate is cut on the dotted linessc to form the independent tie-plates. The section Fig. 8 shows clearly the form of the recesses.

A further feature of my improved tie-plate consists in the slight rounding or beveling 20 {given the edges of the under side subject to ateral play on the upper surface of the ties.

This arrangement prevents the plate cutting into the tie when oscillating or other movement is imparted to the same as a train is passing over the rails.

I claim 1. The combination of a rail-supporting tie plate adapted to be secured to a tie or other structure, an abutment carried by said tie-plate, an adjustable member disposed between said abutment and the flange of the rail and overlying the latter, and means fixed with relation to said tie-plate for confining said member in place in its adjusted positions. 2.
