The article gives some particulars of the Mills clip, an easily-applied rail fastening widely used on wood and concrete sleepers. The Mills clip is made of special ribbed-section spring-steel bar, having a width of 2-1/8 in. and thickness of 15/32 in., heat treated. It generates its grip between the extremities of the upper and lower arms, not relying on any contact with the baseplate except directly under the point of application of load on the rail foot.
