Nolan’s Rail Skate: RS-3

RS-3 Rail Skate

The RS-3 Rail Skate is a lightweight (20 pounds) fabricated steel skate designed to slow down moving rail cars even on a slight downgrade. The RS-3 fits rail heads between 2-1/2″ and 3-3/16″ in width (85-141 lb rail sizes) and prevents flat spots on wheels from occurring as a result of excessive hand brake use. The RS-3 is easily handled by one person, yet offers heavy duty performance that meet track yard requirements.
