The Rail Yard Studios logo echoes the silhouette of the this dome head drive spike.
Designed with a sharp spiraling shaft like a massive screw, the dome head makes its appearance on the rail line at timbered crossings.
Crossties are laid parallel to the rails leaving just enough room for the flange of the wheel to pass by. Then a dome head drive spike securely fastens the two timbers together.
Unlike other screws, dome head drive spikes are driven in with a spiking hammer, and we watch in awe as the head of the shaft twists with each resounding blow that echoes in our ears as the metal sings.
