French type of doubly-resilient rail fastening features vertical holding of the rail between two components of well defined resiliency: 1. Grooved sleeper (tie) pad in rubber, positioned under the rail. 2. A spring-temper steel leaf type clip, the bearing of which is exerted on the rail by means of bolt (in concrete or steel tie) or screw fastening in wooden tie. Advantages of these fastenings are shown as extending into the economics, as retightening is extended to every four to six years, as against the yearly maintenance required with rigid fastenings, and the reduction of the number of tie screw reconditionings required.
