This committee has completed the task of collaborating with ASTM Committee A-1 to make ASTM and AREA specifications for low-carbon steel tie plates, hot-worked high-carbon steel tie plates, and soft-steel track spikes the same in requirements and similar in format. At the same time it was decided to rearrange the AREA specifications for high-carbon steel track spikes and steel drive spikes (which the ASTM does not have) to make them conform also to the new format. In addition to their rearrangement, all these specifications have been revised to permit the use of steel made by the basic-oxygen process.
