What kind of steel is it?


Recommended Posts

trying to find info on what the big square plates that hold RR tracks on the ties. A nephew (bless his heart) picked a few up for me a while back and I was curious as to what they are made of.

I searched and searched the IFI forums with no luck

Thanks Sstreckfuss. I didn't see that second half before. Do you have any idea what the track plate I am talking about is called? the plate si about 10 inches square with two raised sides leaving a spot for the rail to rest in. There are also eight holes in the plate, 4 on each side. half of the holes are spike sized, the other four are smaller.
