Product Description

3d printable nickel steel double shoulder rail tie plate prototype ...

Research: This rail tie plate has a slot for E-clip fastener on both sides... In most developed countries/locations, rails and tie plates are removed using machinery (eg. Allied gator 10C Cracker/crusher) but there are some locations where manual labor is required and machinery might not be available or transportable... Using railway spike puller as a tool to pull spikes out of rail tie plates (attached to wooden rail ties) means more labor and time spent on relocating railways... More time+labor cost = increased taxes!

Design feature: E clip fasteners might make it easier to remove spikes and tie plates off the wooden/concrete/steel ties and probably take less time and less of a hazard. Less operating cost as less tie plates are damaged in the process of relocating.

Alternate application: The same may be true for theme parks and zoo where toy train (or rides) tracks are often relocated as development progress.
