TIES OF OLD RAILS
Lake Shore Road Obtains Good
Results From Recent
TTWTON PACITKrS FAST MAIL BUH
Will Co Down in Annals as
j lip Lake Shore railroad is making a
practical test of steel ties made from
worn out rails. says the Chicago Inter
Ocean. TLe old rails are rerolled to
flatten out tbe bend or ball of tbe rail.
A -number of ties thus made were
placed In tbe Sandusky division of the
road several months ago. A careful ex
amination made a fetv days oro with
a test track gaupe (showed that the
gauge on tbe steel ties bad not changed
a particle since the ties were first laid.
Tbe gauge of the first two or tbree oak
ties on each side of the steel ties also
proved to be exact, but the fourth and
fifth wooden ties were fouud widened
to n considerable extent.
As tbe steel ties are of uniform thick
ness it Is claimed they can be tamped
much better than wooden ties, and the
base of tbe steel tie being uniform,
they give uniform bearing. Therefore,
it is asserted, the surface of tbe tracks
ought to be maintained more evenly
with steel than witb wooden ties.
How to secure proper ties is a ques
tion that every year Is more of a prol
lem to railway managers. Tbe devas
tation of American forests lias induced
tbe Santa Fe and other railroads to
plant trees by thousands along the line
to supply ties in tbe future. The aver
age life of a wooden tie is about six
years, and the renewal of ties is one of
the heaviest drains on a railroad. To
nvoid accident which would cost much
time and money tbe tracks must be
kept in the best of condition. The
steady increase in the weight of en
gines and freight cars means also a
shortening of the period of usefulness
of tbe wooden tie. Hallway managers
are anxious to find something more
durable than wood for ties, and various
kinds of metal ties have been invented
and tried. Some did not stand a prac
tical test, and the use of others was
dlseontined beeause of the expense of
making the ties. The idea of utilizing
worn out rails for ties may overcome
the previous objections to the use of
steel tie. It is claimed that such tie
ought t last from '2Z to .10 years lefore
deteriorating so as to be unsafe. After
it is removed from the track its value
as "scrap" wbuld be as much as is the
value of the old, worn out rail Itefore

It Is suggested that railroads so lo
cated that only soft wood ties can be
secured could use Eteel ties In part, al
ternating them witb wooden ties. This
plan would bold the gaugeof the track,
prevent spreading of rails and general
ly assist in the maintenance of track at
comparatively small outlay.
Record Break lac Ron.
The Union I'acific accomplished a
run with the fast mail from Grand Is
land Into Omaha the other afternoon
which will go down in the annals of
fast running as one of the record
breakers, says the Chicago Times-Herald.
Leaving Grand Island the fast
mail was late. The first stop was at
Columbus, and the CI miles Intervening
were covered In exactly one hour. The
run to Fremont. 45 miles, consumed 40
minutes. The engineer held in reserve
the best speed of bis engine for the
homestretch between Fremont and
Omaha. Through the open country the
train attained a speed that made a mile
a minute look like a freight train
Fchedule. The customary stop was
made at South Omaha, and slackened
speed was necessary from South Oma
ha into Omaha, but the distance, 4t
-miles, from Fremont to Omaha was
made In i minutes. The entire dis
tance, 154 miles, was made in 150 min
utes. . .
The construction of the section of the
Siberian railway round Lake Baikal
will be commenced early next year, as
the latest investigations have led to
very satisfactory results which render
expensive tunneling superfluous, says a
St. Petersburg correspondent. The late
ly surveyed route will lead through the
valley of the Oieha and Tigurtsehica,
so that from Irkutsk to Kultuk only
twb short and easy tunnels of a quarter
of a kilometer each in length will be
necessary. The section of. line should
Le finished in two years' time.
Hereafter the Chicago and Grand
Trunk railway will be officially known
ns the Grank Trunk Western, says a
Chicago dispatcli to the New York
Times. The corporate seal, all station
cry and advertising matter bearing the
old name will be abandoned In favor of
the new name. The Grand Trunk
Western will comprehend all of the
lines of the system in the United
States, a total of 335 miles. The fol
lowing roads in addition to the Chicago
and Grand Trunk will be known as the
Grand Trunk Western: Detroit. Grand
Haven and Milwaukee. Toledo, Sagi
naw and Muskegon. Chicago, Detroit
and Canada Grand Trunk Junction and
the Michigan Air Line.
