14141Re: [FJGRailroad] Tie Plates
- Oct 30, 2009Joe,
I would need to see a photo to be sure... but... I think you're describing the type of tie plate that used to be used on tight curves on high-speed lines. Conrail used to use them at Big Nose Curve down in the Mohawk Valley.
I'm assuming this is the type that would be bolted to the tie rather than spiked... and some had a "crease" in order to use a spring-type attachment that held the rail in place more solidly than a normal spike.
