Description

Railroad anchor bookends are made from a hardened steel rail anchor welded to a steel plate all with a hand polished lacquer finish. This industrial artifact in an abstract modern sculpture that has done time on the rails and will make a handsome addition to your office desk, book shelf or make the perfect railroadiana gift. The steampunk sculpture can be oriented with flat stock steel base down as a desktop sculpture picture holder or the flat stock on the side of the rail anchor for the bookend.

Rail anchors are giant springs pounded onto the bottom flange of the steel rail to act as a lateral stiffener between the rail and the perpendicular wooden railroad tie. They are an integral piece of structural fastening and bracing hardware to transfer force to the crosstie without being attached to it.

Rail anchors clamp onto the base of the rail snug against both sides of the railroad tie. This forces the rail to move the tie along the axis of the track if it tries to slide or expand or contract. Since expansion or contraction generally cannot exert enough force to move all the ties, the rail will expand or contract in the perpendicular direction instead of along the axis of the track.
