A railroad track spike or a rail spike is a large nail with an offset head that is used to secure rails and base plates to the sleepers in track. As an important part of rail fastening system, rail spike is roughly chisel-shaped with a flat-edged point. On the construction of railroad, rail spikes are driven into the sleeper with the edge against the grain, which gives greater resistance to loosening. The main function of the track spike is to secure the rail in gauge. Broadly speaking, railroad track spike can provide a strong, simple and inexpensive solution to securing rail track.
