Our Newest Rail Skate Provides Better Performance with Less Weight!

  • Manufactured using lightweight, fabricated steel
  • Designed to prevent flat spots or other damage when wheels are locked and skidding occurs
  • Can slow moving rail cars, or hold standing rail cars, even when on a slight downgrade
  • Lightweight yet sufficiently sturdy for flat switching and hump yard applications to control unwanted car movement
  • Easily handled by one person, yet are tough and durable enough to meet track yard car handling requirements

FEATURES

  • Lightweight Skate: The RS-3 is a lighter weight skate (20 lbs) with heavy-duty performance!
  • Fabricated from High Strength Steel: Allows the skate’s toe (or tip) to resist wear – will take a long time for the tip to wear down.
  • Versatility: Fits rail heads between 2-1/2″ and 3-3/16″ in width (85-141 lb rail sizes).
  • Flared Guide Lugs: Allows skate side (guide) lugs to pass through misaligned rail section joints.
  • Sleek Narrow Design: Provides a skate that more easily allows wheel tread to mount the toe (or tip) of skate without exact positioning.
