A special switch based on the stub principle, which was originally developed for use as a snow-free switch in yards, is now being offered for use wherever conditions are such as to cause split switches to become clogged and rendered inoperable unless cleaned out. An application on the Lake Terminal Railway on a track at the coke-oven quench track has proved to be resistant to clogging by materials other than snow and ice, and has eliminated a problem with derailed cars at that point.
