RUBBER RAILROAD CROSSINGS

HEAVY LAG BOLTS HOLD RUBBER PADS IN PLACE ON TIES UNDER THE RAIL. PADS ROLL WITH THE PUNCH PERMITTING SEVERE WEAR AND TEAR FROM HIGHWAY VEHICLES AND TRAINS, YET REBOUND TO ORIGINAL POSITION AFTER LOAD IS REMOVED. MAINTENANCE IS NEGLIGIBLE, MORE THAN OFFSETTING THE HIGHER ORIGINAL COST. /HSL/
