SPUR THAT TURNED OUT TO BE A TEST TRACK

The paper describes a 3-mi spur track on the Louisville and Nashville which is a test track for two devices. One is the Huck fastening which was used in lieu of bolts in the joints. The other is the Armco Rail-Anchor spike, a single-piece device that is designed to serve both as a line spike and a two-way anti-creeper for the rail.
