Railroad Tie Plates for Sale

Railroad tie plate, also called base plate, is a thick panel made of steel which is used between the rail and tie or sleeper. The tie plate usually works with anchor bolt or railroad spike by sustaining the load of a rail track and transferring part of the load to the tie sleeper so that the rail will be steadier and maintained in the right gauge. Moreover, rail tie plate can also be used to extend the longevity of a new track installation so that the safety for passengers and railway workers can be better achieved.
