L.B. Foster Company: Switch Stands

L.B. Foster Company

L.B. Foster supplies various switch stands. The positive-action switch stand, designed for general heavy-rail application, features a gear-type design to provide for selective clearance adjustment of either switch point by means of shims, without disconnecting the rods from the stand. The stand can be made semi-automatic by the use of a spring connecting rod in place of a rigid rod, or by installation of a spring heat rod in the switch. It is designed to permit wheels to trail through without damage to the switch or stand. A reversible target or lamp can be supplied.
