Specification of Letters Patent.

v Application filed May 19, 1908. Serial No. 433,742.

To all whom it may concern:

. Be it known that we, JOHN Voncnm and JUInUs ROSENBERG, both citizens of the UmtedStates, and residents of Granite City, Madison county, Illinois, have invented certain new and useful Improvements inia Combined Metallic Railway-Tie and Rail- Fastener. of which the following is a specificatio'n containing a full, clear, and-exact description, reference being .had to the ac- -companying drawings, forming a part hereof.

Our ,invention relates to a combined metallic'railway tie and rail fastener, and consists in certain novel features of construction and arrangement of parts, which will be hereinafter more fully set forth, pointed out in the claims, and illustrated in the accompanying drawings, in which Figure '1 is a perspective view of our inetallic tie with a part broken away; Fig. 2 is a perspective View of our improved fastener; Fig. 3 is a side view of the tie with a part broken away, showing the fastening bolt, the fastener'in side elevation, and the rails in section; and Figs 4 is a top plan view of our invention with the rails secured thereto,

parts of the rails being broken away;

-()ur improved tie is preferably cast of metal, in the form of a box or channel, having its center portion cut away, as at l, and

both ends of the tie are similarly constructed. Formed on the top of the tie are integral lugs 2, there being a space or open- .ing between the free ends the tie body. This space or opening is adapted to receive one of the base flanges of the rails. The lugs 2 are spaced apart, as indicated in Figs. 1 and 4.

3 indicates other integral lugs formed on the tie. These lugs are in alinement with the lugs'2, and it will be seen by referring to 5, which the drawings that beneath the free ends of these lugs there is formed a rectangular opening 4.

Formed in the top of thetie is an opening These openings 5 and 6 are for the purpose of receiving the locking bolts. The rail is of said lugs and.

terminates in a narrow opening. 6.

held in its position on the tie by means of the key illustrated in Fig. 2. This key is provided with a recessed portion 7 and an L- shaped slot 8, a shoulder 9, and a cut away portion 10. The cut away portion 10 is adapted to fit over one side of the rail base flange.

1'1 indicates the bolt by means of which the key is secured to the tie. The manner in which the rails are secured to the tie is as follows: One side of the base flange of the rail is inserted in the openings beneath the free ends of the lugs 2. The key is then inserted from the side, the rectangular portion 12 of the key being placed in the rectangular openings 4 beneath the free ends of the lugs 3. The key is driven in until the opening 8 and the opening 6 coincide. The head of the locking bolt 11 is inserted throughthc opening 5 and slipped toward the rail in the openin s 6 and 8, and when it has reached the end of the opening 8, the key is further driven, as illustrated at the left hand of l. and when in this position the rail is securely locked to the tie.

It will be seen from the foregoing that the rail is secured to the tie or held fastened to the tie by means of the lugs 2 passing over one side of the base flange of the rail, the key passing over the opposite side of the base flangeof the rail, and the locking bolt which secures the key to the tie.

Having fully described our invention, what we claim is:

1. A combined metallic railway tie and rail fastener, comprising a body, pairs of oppositely disposed lugs formed on said body, one of which pairs of lugs receives one of the base flanges of the rail, a key adapted to fit between the opposite pair of lugs and engage over the corresponding base flange of the rail, in which key is formed 'a slot having an offset inner end, and a bolt for locking the key to the body, which bolt normally occupies the offset inner end of the slot.

2. A combined metallic railway tie and a pair of lugs adapted to receive one side of Patented Feb. 16, 1909.

the base flange of the rail, another pair of 1 names to this specification, in presence of lugs, Celmd opening Lbeilzlween1 slaid -lus,da' key two subscribing Witnesses.

rovi e with an -s a e s 0t, an a a ted 9 1 0 be received by said lei st mentioned pai i' of 5 lugs, which key is adapted to receive the opposite side of the base flange, and a locking Witnesses: belt for securing said key to the tie. BI. P. SMITH,

In testimony whereof, We have signed our E. L. iVALLACEi
