The railroad plate increases bearing area and holds the rail to correct gauge;
The railroad plate prevents damage of the sleepers due to rubbing action and holds the spike firmly to the sleepers.

Types of railroad plate:

1. The tie plate can be either casting iron or casting steel, depending on the load and the type of rails. Cast iron can be the welded or fabricated type, depending on the customers' requirements.
