Figure 6-22. Recommended Minimum Rail Anchor Application
(2) When anchors are used, each tie that is anchored will have four anchors applied (box anchored),
per tie as shown in figure 6-22.
(3) Either type of anchor, spring or drive-on (shown in figure 6-23), may be used. Drive-on anchors
have the advantage of being easier to apply and remove manually, and do not require a special anchor
wrench, as do spring anchors. It is possible, though, to over-drive a drive-on anchor, causing it to lose its
ability to tightly grip the rail base.
